length of pastorate. Thirty-two of 36 Churches had Vacation Bible 
Schools during the summer months. 

7. Mr. Marse Grant, of Thomasville, Editor of Charity and Children, 
our Orphanage Paper, spoke to the Association on, "Builders of the 
Orphanage," reviewing some of the great personalities connected with the 
Orphanage in the past and present. He reminded us that we are in 
the business of building young Christian boys and girls. 

8. Rev. E. C. Chamblee, of Grove Park Church, Burlington, was 
recognized and presented the report on Sunday School work, noting 
substantial gains in every department. He stressed the importance of 
family worship. 

9. Rev. Guthrie Colvard, of Brookwood Church, Burlington, pre- 
sented the Training Union report, which also showed progress. But he 
reminded the Association of the 20 churches without a training program, 
and challenged the pastors and churches to launch such a program.

18. The annual sermon was delivered by Rev. Tom M. Freeman, 
pastor of Hocutt Memorial Church, Burlington, using as his subject, 
"How to be a Great Christian." He said that a noble ambition is 
worthy, and we should all desire to live great lives. He suggested three 
answers to the question of "How can I be great?"— the answer of Force, 
the answer of Christian culture, and the answer of Christ, who says, 
"He that would be great among you, let him be your minister." He 
said we should all make it our ambition to serve Christ, because of the 
inherent values, because of the example of Jesus, and because of the 
command of Jesus. He closed with a challenge that we let Christ take 
hold of our lives and use them. 

After prayer by Mr. Freeman, the Association adjourned for lunch.

22. Rev. L. H. Hollingsworth, Mebane First Church, spoke on Asso-

we must be ready to go wherever people need Christ and carry the gospel. 
He said that we must be unashamed of the gospel of Christ and recog- 
nize its power to redeem any person who receives and believes it. 

23. Mr. Dicken led in singing, "O How I Love Jesus." 

24. Rev. Troy E. Jones requested all pastors to be present for the

a petitioning church is to present. Notice was given that the matter

appointed Rev. L. H. Hollingsworth and Rev. E. C. Chamblee as a com- 
mittee to study this matter and report back to the Association tomorrow. 

29. Mr. Dicken sang a solo, "What Shall I Give Thee?" 



18 Eighty-first Annual Session 

30. Mr. Horace Easom, of Shelby, our State Brotherhood Secretary, 
delivered a message on Christian Education, using the subject, "Our 
Supreme Opportunity." Speaking of the movement to transfer Wake 
Forest College to Winston-Salem, he discussed the Vision, Mechanics, and 
Purpose of the movement. The Association was thrilled and inspired by 
his message. 

Rev. Paul Deaton, Hillsboro First Church, led in the closing prayer, 
and the Association adjourned to meet again tonight at Glen Hope 
Church. 

TUESDAY EVENING SESSION 

Glen Hope Baptist Church, Burlington 

31. The session opened with the Associational Men's Chorus of 32 
voices singing, "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God," led by Mr. R. Hansford 
Dicken. Moderator Guy S. Cain led in prayer. The Chorus then sang,

32. Dr. Clyde D. Chapman, Swepsonville, read John 1:1-14, and led 
the Association in prayer. 

33. Mr. Dicken led the Men's Chorus in singing three hymns: "Christ

34. Rev. John W. Lambert announced that the Men's Chorus had 
decided to continue meeting and rehearsing, forming a permanent organi- 
zation. He invited other men to join the group, increasing it to 50 voices. 

35. The Clerk reported briefly on the day sessions, and urged all 
messengers and visitors to fill out and turn in enrollment cards. 

36. The Moderator presented Dr. E. L. Spivey, of Charlotte, one of 
our State Missionaries, who spoke to the Association on Missions. He 
said that God has given us a Message, a Map and Motive Power. He 
confined his remarks to the message and map. He told how a seed sown 
and the harvest replanted grew in six years to need 25,000 acres for 
replanting the harvest. He figured mathematically that in 30 years the 
one seed would have produced enough to require the whole earth for 
planting the harvest. The Gospel is as fruitful in the spiritual realm. 
He illustrated by telling how the Baptists divided in 1830 over the ques- 
tion of missions and education, leaving about 10,000 Missionary and 
10,000 Anti-mission Baptists. After 120 years we see in North Carolina 
about 18,000 Anti-Mission Baptists and 665,000 Missionary Baptists. 
We are to begin witnessing where we receive our experience of grace 
and power (Acts 1:8) and to carry it out wherever there are people. 
We are to by-pass no one with the gospel. 

Dr. Spivey led the Association in the closing prayer. 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 19 

SECOND DAY, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 18, 1950 
Southside Baptist Church, Burlington 

37. At 10:00 o'clock the Moderator called the Association to order, 
and Mr. Dicken led in singing, "The Son of God Goes Forth to War." 

38. Rev. Bennett Walker, Deep Creek Church, read Philippians 2:5-15, 
and led in prayer. 

39. The Baptist Hospital representative not being present, the Moder- 
ator moved to the next order of business. Pastor W. R. Wagoner, 
Mount Carmel, presented his report on Baptist Literature, and spoke on 
the report. The report was adopted. The Moderator then recognized 
Rev. C. W. Bazemore, of Raleigh, assistant to the editor of the Biblical 
Recorder, who spoke in an attractive way concerning Christian Litera- 
ture. He was well received by the Association. 

40. The Moderator recognized Dr. W. K. McGee, director of Religious 
Activities at the Baptist Hospital, who spoke on the work of the Hospital. 
He indicated that offerings for the New Wing are coming in at a very 
encouraging rate. He revealed that the General Board of the Baptist 
State Convention will recommend to the Convention that no money be 
borrowed, but that the total amount of $700,000 be raised among the 
churches. He also reported that the Mother's Day offerings are running 
about $10,000 above last year. He said that 100,000 people pass through 
the Hospital annually, making this one of the most effective agencies 
among Baptists for touching the life of North Carolina. 

41. Miss Gail Colvard, Brookwood, sang a solo, "Hark, the Voice of 
Jesus Calling," accompanied by Mrs. Guthrie Colvard. 

42. Miss Annie Strowd, of Bethel Church, Associational W.M.U. 
President, presented Miss Marie Epley, 1950 graduate of the W.M.U. 
Training School, in Louisville, Kentucky, who is now a worker with 
our State W.M.U. Miss Epley presented a message on the Woman's 
Missionary Union work. 

43. The Clerk reported a registration of 328 yesterday. 

44. Rev. John W. Lambert, our Associational Missionary, made a

45. Mr. Dicken led us in singing, "Something for Jesus." 

46. Mrs. Thomas Wolfe, Burlington First Church, sang a solo, "Turn 
Ye Even to Me," accompanied by Mrs. John W. Lambert. 

47. Rev. George W. Swinney, Glen Hope, delivered the sermon on 
evangelism. He asked Rev. Luther A. Nail, of Calvary Church, to read 
Matthew 28:24-28, and lead in prayer. Mr. Swinney then spoke on the 
subject, "Some Great Thing," basing his message on 2 Kings 5:13, "If 



20 Eighty-first Annual Session 

the prophet had bid thee do some great thing, wouldest thou not have 
done it?" He said that we are all prone to want to do some great thing, 
but that God often asks us to do the small or humble thing. There are 
small things to be done, and we need the vision and compassion and 
willingness to go to the lost with the message of salvation. 

Mr. Swinney led the closing prayer and offered thanks for the lunch, 
which was spread on tables outside. 

WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON SESSION 

48. Rev. Guthrie Colvard led the Association in singing, "Wonderful 
Words of Life" and "When I Survey the Wondrous Cross," accompanied 
by Mrs. Colvard at the piano. 

49. Rev. C. H. Stanfield, Altamahaw, led our devotions. He read 
I Timothy 4:8-16, and spoke briefly on the passage, bringing inspiration 
to the messengers and visitors. He then led in prayer. 

50. Mr. Colvard led the Association in singing, "Revive Us Again." 

51. During the miscellaneous business period, the Moderator recog- 
nized Rev. E. C. Chamblee, Grove Park, who presented again the pro- 
posed constitutional change, of which notice was given yesterday. The 
proposed change is to be in article 9, and will change the words (in 
line 5) "at the next annual session" to read, "at an annual session," 
and will establish a form letter to be filled out by churches seeking admis- 
sion to the Association. The motion to adopt the change was passed by a 
unanimous vote. 

52. The Moderator was authorized to have the Executive Committee 
elect an Auditor, as authorized by the Constitution. 

53. The Clerk presented the petition of the Riverside Church, near 
Graham, for membership in the Association. The Association voted 
to receive the Church as an associate member with the understanding that 
the proper application form will be filled out and presented to the Execu- 
tive Committee for proper constitutional action. 

54. The Association formally recognized Gospel Tabernacle Baptist 
Church as a member of the Association. They were received by the 
Executive Committee since the last annual session, upon vote of the 
Association last year. 

55. The Historian, Mr. R. H. Hutchinson, gave his report, which 
was a sketch of the beginning of Baptist work in the present Mount Zion 
Association. His report is carried among the reports in this volume. 

56. Mr. J. A. Webster, Swepsonville, Treasurer of the Association,

Mount Zion Baptist Association 21 

57. Rev. Guthrie Colvard made a motion that next year the Moderator 
be asked to name a Committee on Committees, as well as a Nominating 
Committee, to facilitate the work. The motion carried. 

58. Rev. Guthrie Colvard presented an additional report of the 
Nominating Committee, which was adopted. See the directory of the 
Association. 

59. Rev. W. R. Wagoner moved that a standing vote of appreciation 
be given the retiring Moderator and his associates, who have served us 
during the first two years of our work after certain churches withdrew 
from us to form the Yates Baptist Association, in Durham County. The 
motion passed unanimously. The Moderator then introduced to the 
Association the incoming Moderator and Vice-Moderator, Rev. Tom M. 
Freeman, of Hocutt Memorial, Burlington, and Mr. Vernon Sparrow, of 
Mount Carmel, Chapel Hill. 

60. The Moderator recognized Rev. J. H. Waugh, Jr., Southside 
Church, Burlington, who was to bring the stewardship sermon. He asked 
Rev. Ralph A. Wilson to read Mark 12:41-44, and lead in prayer. 

Mr. Waugh then delivered an effective sermon on "Stewardship 
Undergirding All Our Work." He said that even as Jesus stood by the 
Temple treasury watching the people put in their offerings, so He stands 
by to see every gift that we offer. He also sees deep into the heart of 
every giver, even as he saw into the heart of the poor widow who gave 
two mites. Jesus commends the wealthy who give much, and He also 
commends the poor who give as they are able. We all should give to the 
cause of Christ, because we realize the needs of others and because we 
love Christ. 

61. Rev. Guthrie Colvard led in singing, "Give of Your Best to the 
Master." 

62. Dr. Carlton S. Prickett, Burlington First Church, led the Asso- 
ciation in the closing prayer of the 1950 session, and the meeting was 
adjourned. 



Historian's Report 



Thomas Cates, pastor of Cane Creek Baptist Church, as early as 1789 
began the extension of the Baptist principals to other communities. 
Among the first arms established was that of Haw River Mountain, now 
Antioch. In 1806 Haw River Mountain became a regular Baptist 
Church. 

Ashe, in his history of North Carolina, says W. R. Gwaltney and 
F. M. Jordan, during the Civil War, did missionary work in what was 
later the Mount Zion Association and among the soldiers in the army 
camps. Members of Cane Creek Church were baptized in the army pre- 
sumably by F. M. Jordan. 

Mount Zion Association was formed in 1870 by 13 Baptist Churches 
with a membership of less than 1600. Eight of these churches were 
in Orange County, three in Chatham and two in Durham. At once 
the newly formed Association began mission work in the growing in- 
dustrial center, later the city of Durham, in the destitute country sections 
of Orange and Durham counties and looking and working to the west 
where there was but one Baptist church, Mount Zion Church, in all the 
region of Alamance County and Orange County west of Antioch, Cane 
Creek, and Hillsboro churches. 

At one time the associational report was that Alamance County was 
as destitute of Baptists as was Eastern North Carolina. There was a 
reason for this. South Alamance, along Cane Creek, was settled by 
Friends, Eastern and Central Alamance was settled by Presbyterians and 
the Western part by German Lutherans. What few Baptists there were 
in North Alamance became Primitive Baptists. In the 1830's aggressive 
Christian and Protestant Methodists had established several churches. 
When a Baptist family moved into this region they w T ere soon absorbed 
by these well established denominations. 

There was a group of Baptists who had not been taken in by other 
churches when J. H. Vernon, our first regular missionary at a salary of 
$50.00 for the summer months, preached on first and fourth Sundays at 
Company Shops, now Burlington, held a meeting at Moore's School near 
Saxapahaw in fodder pulling time 1873. He found a number of Baptists 
there who were members of four different Baptist Churches from eight 
to twelve miles from their homes. These Baptists attended services at 
their respective churches. The next year 1874 an arm of Cane Creek 
Church was formed, and in 1878 a regular church was organized as 
Moore's Chapel Church with 33 members. Even the pastor, Rev. R. A. 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 23 

Patterson, gave his yearly salary of $25 and a house of worship was soon 
built. No record of outside aid is shown. 

However the first Baptist Church organized in Alamance County 
was at Graham. In order to appreciate the struggle those Baptists under- 
went it is necessary to know some of the economic conditions under 
which they then lived. The first members of these missionary Baptist 
churches were largely people living on farms in the surrounding country 
who moved to the cotton mills to work. The wages then were about 
fifty cents for a twelve hour day. This income was so low that it was 
hard to support their families. Practically nothing was left for them to 
contribute to the building of houses of worship or to support of the 
pastors. Often when mills shut down the church declined or ceased to 
exist as in the case of Cool Spring, Mebane, Bellmont and others. 

In January, 1874, two Baptist men in Graham asked for a preacher. 
The Association sent Rev. W. T. Farrow. He preached twice each month 
in the Presbyterian Church on off Sundays or in the court house or in 
the free school building. 

The following year, just before he was to hold a revival in the 
Christian Church by permission of Rev. S. W. Long, he died. Then 
Rev. S. W. Wescott was sent. The meetings were held in the rented 
Good Templers Hall. Rev. Wescott was there only two months before 
he too died. Then W. B. Farrell came. During this time Graham 
Baptist Church had been organized. Only one member owned property 
over the exemption. At one time the church worshiped in the second 
story of a building which had been a liquor warehouse. To get to the 
second story room the congregation passed a grog shop on one side or a 
cock pit on the other. 

Graham Church was a struggling mission for more than 20 years. 
C. E. Gower was on the mission field and began work at Mebane 
in 1883. The work there was a mission point for 25 years. 

W. L. Wright worked for two years at Swepsonville to get a church 
established in 1881 with five members. 

J. C. Hocutt worked at West Burlington for 21 years. He died just 
before a church was established, the Hocutt Memorial. 

In 1873 one man agreed to give a lot for a church at Company Shops, 
if the work progressed. A church was organized 14 years later with 
fourteen members. The church asked the association to come up and 
help them take Alamance County for the Lord. Next year they reported 
one baptism and a lot purchased. 

Baptist establishment in Alamance County was a struggle for 50 
years and even now is only in the industrial centers. 

R. H. Hutchinson, Moore's Chapel. 



Historical Sketches of Mt. Zion Churches 



Brief histories of Mt. Zion churches are recorded in the Minutes of the years as 
herewith listed. The Associate Historian suggests that every church in the Associa- 
tion have copies of the Associational Minutes bound every ten years and keep them in 
the local church libraries. This will make the minutes of the years available to all 
the churches, and these bound volumes will grow more valuable with each passing 
year. 

Although our Association has had Historians almost from the date of its organi- 
zation still the Clerk was not able to find the history of any church recorded in the 
Minutes until 1921. Just why the sketches of other years were not incorporated in 
the Minutes is inexplicable. 

At the 1874 session of the Association it was decided to elect a Historian annually. 
The Minutes of 1875 record that "The report of the historian was adopted and 
ordered to be recorded in the 'Book of Records of the Association.' " No trace of this 
book exists. The historical sketches from 1921 are shown in the Minutes as follows:

SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT TO THE MT. ZION ASSOCIATION 1950 

The theme of the Sunday School Board of the Southern Baptist Convention which 
has been placed before our church people for 1950-51 is, "Take Your Family to Sunday 
School." We are urged to make this more than a theme or "good saying," for if we 
do we will have the right direction and will make great distance in evangelizing the 
lost and the instruction of the saved. 

We pass on to you "five major emphases" which are suggested that we, in our local 
churches, keep before us this year and do our utmost to attain: 

1. More People This Year— This year the goal is 500,000 net gain in Sunday School 
enrollment. This number is one fifth of our unenrolled church members. Surely, 
we should enroll one out of five of our own church members who are not now in 
Sunday School. 

2. More Complete Families— In four ways families are divided. As to Sunday 
School, often children are sent and parents stay at home. As to Christ, many times 
one parent is a Christian and the other is not. As to the church, one parent is a 
Methodist and the other is a Baptist. As to the home, so many couples are divorced. 

The right answer to these divisions is found in united families— united in church 
attendance, united in Bible Study, united in Church Membership, united in the Family 
Altar. Get every member of every family in Sunday School, and other desirable and 
helpful things will follow. 

3. More Bible Study This Year— More Bible study and better Bible teaching are 
necessities. Give time and place to the January Bible Study Week; the Bible books 
in the Sunday School Training Course and the Vacation Bible School. 

4. Stronger Churches This Year— The Sunday School is a servant of the church. We 
call upon the Sunday School officers and teachers everywhere to put the influence 
of the church and the program of the church first. 

5. More Christians This Year— Baptist churches win to Christ each year one out 
of three lost people enrolled in Sunday School, whereas, they win only one out of 
240 lost people not in Sunday School. Churches that do not have a Sunday School 
average one baptism each year. 

A census, regular visitation, organization of additional classes, and enlistment of 
additional workers are effective means in evangelism. 

This is right direction, and here is room for distance, much greater distance. 

Respectfully submitted, 

E. C. Chamblee, Asso. S. S. Supt. 

TRAINING UNION REPORT 

It is our firm belief that Training Union has been presented to our association 
this year in a very fine way. Much of the credit is due to the Associational Officers 
for the fine way they have served with your Director during the year. Over 600 
people were present in the several meetings that were planned and carried out during 
the year of work. One of the great joys of the year was the planning for the Enlarge-' 
ment Campaign that took place October 8-13, 1950. This cannot be reported for this 
year, but we believe that it will show up in the reports for next year. 

During this year of work offerings were received in the Training Union Associational 
meetings, the total amount was $65.90. All monies were turned over to the Associa- 
tional Treasurer. The total amount spent by the Training Union Organization during 
the year was $48.85. 

Your Director traveled over 350 miles during the year in associational work, sent 
out over 300 letters, and over 200 cards. 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 27 

Your officers planned for and carried out the following meetings: Mass Meetings 
3, Officer's and Leader's Conferences 2, Executive Officer's Meetings 2. 

Our sincere thanks to all the churches and pastors, with their directors, for their 
very fine cooperation during this year. 

As Dr. Clyde Chapman leads you this year that we are in, will you give to him 
your support as you have given it to me? Let us make it our aim "Every Church in 
the Mt. Zion Association with a Training Union." 

Respectfuly submitted, 

Guthrie Colvard. 

ASSOCIATIONAL MISSIONARY'S REPORT 

From March 3, 1950— the actual beginning of the Associational Program in this 
district— to September 30, 1950, my ministry for the Mount Zion Baptist Association

conduct of the following meetings: 

Preached 3 1 sermons for pastors or pastorless churches. 

Presented 8 Visual Aids Programs on the N. C. Baptist Hospital. 

Presented 3 Visual Aids Programs on Associational Missions.

way No. 100.

Delivered 19 special messages at WMU meetings, R. A.'s, Brotherhoods, banquet, 
S. S., etc. 

Conducted 1 Associational-wide S. S. Planning Meeting. 

Taught 3 Training Union Study Courses. 

Conducted S. S. Planning Meeting in local church (one). 

Served as Counselor and teacher in 2 R. A. Camps— Fruitland and Caswell Assemblies.

Attended 27 special meetings, including Mass Meetings, local committee meetings, 
Baptist State Convention (Special meeting at Charlotte), Southern Baptist Convention, 
Baptist World Alliance. 

Visited 25 of our churches during some type of service. 

Many conferences held and many letters written; announcements mailed out.

2 Associational-wide Sunday School Planning Meetings: Johnston and South Sandy 
Creek Associations. 

1 Sunday School Study Course in the First Baptist Church, Reidsville. 

1 Rural Enlargement Campaign in the Flat River Association. 

During the past summer 32 of our churches in the Association, and one outside the 
association, held Vacation Bible Schools. This gives us 32 churches out of 36 having 
VBS, whereas last year we had 30 out of 38, since then two of our churches have 
joined the Yates Association. We have a percentage of 89, a gain of 11 points over 
last year. In connection with our VBS work we would like to express our great appre- 
ciation to Miss Sarah Peedin, now a Junior at East Carolina Teachers College, 
Greenville, N. C. for her inspiring and efficient work in so many of the VBS of our 
Association. 

Respectfully submitted, 

John W. Lambert, Missionary.

industry. He said that the liquor industry was spending $160,000,000.00 
per year for advertising liquors and that the churches were spending 
a very small amount in educating the youth on beverage alcohol ill 
effects. He said that the Christian church can do more than any other 
agency in our society to combat this evil. 

47. Dr. Sydnor L. Stealey, President of the Southern Theological 
Seminary at Wake Forest, then spoke on the "Church and Public Life."

of students who ever started at a seminary. He praised the faculty as 
being manly, scholarly, and consecrated. 

He said that the greatest problem today is secularism, pointing out 
that the world is in danger of having no religion at all. He stated that 
Christ was the center of any adequate life and that the person with whom 
our lives are tied up determines the course of our lives. He closed by 
emphasizing the need of people to tie up their lives with Christ. 

The Association was closed by prayer and the meeting was adjourned. 



Historian's Report 

Cane Creek Baptist Church 



Cane Creek is the oldest Baptist Church in the Mount Zion Associa- 
tion. The first record we have of it was the deed of August 20, 1789, 
when Thomas Durham deeded one acre of land for 20 shillings to 
Thomas Cates, minister and eight trustees, on which to build a meeting 
house. The trustees were Thomas Cates, Richard Cates, Joseph Cates, 
Bernard Cates, Robert Cates, John Workman, John Strader and Mary 
Christmas. All were land owners and four owned slaves as is shown by 
the tax lists for 1790. Their wills indicate that they possessed Christian 
characters. 

However, Cane Creek likely was not then an organized Baptist 
Church, for it was not listed in 1790 as belonging to the Sandy Creek 
Association. It was supposed to be an arm of Haw River Church located 
near Bynum. Elnathan Davis was pastor of Haw River. Among his 
assistants, licensed preachers of several arms of Haw River, was Thomas 
Cates. It was an organized church before August 20, 1806 for on that 
date Antioch was organized from an arm of Cane Creek. All minutes of 
Cane Creek before May, 1829, have been lost and the minutes of Sandy 
Creek Association to 1805 were burned. 

There is a tradition that there was a meeting house named Cane 
Creek as early as September, 1781. If this tradition is true the meeting 
house was on private property for in colonial times a Baptist Church 
could not own property for a meeting house. The supposition would be 
strong that there were Baptists along Cane Creek from the time of 
Shubal Stearns, either converted by visiting Sandy Creek or Cane Creek 
being visited by Shubal Stearns or some of his many converts who be- 
came licensed preachers. 

Cane Creek joined and remained in the Sandy Creek Association 
until 1837 and belonged to the Bulah Association until 1870. She joined 
the Mount Zion Association at its organization. 

In March, 1833, the pastor, Stephen Pleasants, was received, by state- 
ment, into Cane Creek Church after he had been excluded by Ebenezer 
Church in Person County for favoring benevolent principals, viz. Bible, 
Temperance and Missionary Societies. There arose a difference between 
Cane Creek and Ebenezer Churches and Sandy Creek and County Line 
Associations. When Cane Creek on the advice of Sandy Creek sent a 
committee to Ebenezer Church, it was not received. There is no record 
of any member of Cane Creek going with the Primitive Baptists. 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 21 

Preaching in 1829 was done by Armstrong V. Roberts, Levi Andrews, 
and Stephen Pleasants. It is not clear who was pastor. However, in 1830 
Stephen Pleasants was called to preach two times every two months at 
a salary of $50. Later he was called every month preaching. Enoch 
Crutchfield was clerk in 1829 but he moved the next year and Stephen 
Justice acted as clerk. We do not know when Enoch Crutchfield became 
clerk nor when he began his long career as a Baptist preacher. 

George W. Purefoy, the next pastor, served from 1839 to sometime 
near the Civil War, Samuel Balwin during the war. Just at the close 
and after the war, Frank M. Jordon and W. R. Gwaltney served two 
years each. Next was James T. Mason, from 1871 to 1881. Then came 
R. A. Moore, C. E. Gower, P. A. Ferguson and O. Churchill. John C. 
Hocutt served at three different times. J. W. Watson was pastor for two 
years, J. L. McDuffey was pastor from 1896 to 1907. Then followed 
W. O. Petty, S. C. Hilliard, W. T. Baucham, L. K. Dixon, H. Grady 
Dorsett, Rufus S. Lemons and C. E. Bird. Each serving from one to 
four years. B. L. Gupton was pastor from 1925 through 1940 and was 
followed by J. H. Marshall, J. M. Wright and James Rittenhouse. 

The clerks after Stephen Justice were Thomas D. Oldham, from 1834 
to near the Civil War. Thomas J. Cates was then Clerk for a few years. 
D. M. Sykes, the next clerk served thirty-five years. Followed by June 
L. Cheek from 1907 to 1921. Then W. M. Snipes was clerk until 1944. 
Otto King was clerk for three years and Norbert K. Andrews is serving 
at present. 

At least four churches have been formed from Cane Creek. In 1806, 
Haw River Mountain, now Antioch, was organized from an arm of 
Cane Creek. In 1830 Stephen Justice and John Reeves, deacons of Cane 
Creek received a deed from John J. Freeland for two acres to build a 
meeting house two and one-half miles north of Hillsboro on the road to 
Goshen. In June, 1834, an arm of Cane Creek was formed and in Sep- 
tember letters were granted to form an independent church called Mars 
Hill. 

In April, 1874, Chesley Moore and others with the missionary of 
Mount Zion Association were authorized to sit in conference at Moore's 
Schoolhouse to receive and baptize members. In May, 1878, nineteen 
members were granted letters to form Moore's Chapel Church. 

In December, 1882, twenty-two members were dismissed by letter to 
form the new church Betheden, now Cross Roads Church. 

Cane Creek has lettered members to the churches of Chapel Hill, 
Durham, Hillsboro, Mebane, Swepsonville, Graham, and Burlington. 
While she has baptized over one thousand, two hundred into fellowship 
over four hundred of these have gone to swell the ranks of the Lord's 
children in other fields. 



22 Eighty-second Annual Session 

Likely the first place of meeting for worship was in some home or a 
cabin or some farm. After the lot was bought in 1789 a meeting house 
was erected. All that can now be found is the meeting house spring some 
one-half mile northwest of the present building. There is a tradition 
that a second meeting house was erected on this lot. 

In 1852, the present site of eleven and one-half acres was bought 
from Thomas Brewer for $12.00, Thomas J. Cates, Wyatt Cates, Thomas 
Cates and Sidney Whitted were trustees. The land was situated along 
the stage road from Greensboro to Raleigh and near the inn where 
the change of horses was made and the second day's travel began. 

In July, 1883, the trustees were appointed on a building committee. 
They soon presented plans to the churches and were authorized to 
build a new church house. On the 16th of January, 1884, the church 
met and began to get out the timber. In June, they bought 23,000 
shingles for $51.10. A year later another gathering of the church erected 
the frame work. Later the weatherboarding, doors, and door frames, 
windows and window frames were bought for $146.53. The building 
was finally floored and completed in September, 1888 and last bill of 
$14.75 was paid by letting L. M. Cates have three bells for the amount. 
While it was over four years in building the members put their own 
labor in it and loved the house more. 

In the building of the present house just completed, the church 
members contributed of their own labor also.

Historical Sketches of Mt. Zion Churches 



Brief histories of Mt. Zion churches are recorded in the Minutes of the years as 
herewith listed. The Associate Historian suggests that every church in the Associa- 
tion have copies of the Associational Minutes bound every ten years and keep them in 
the local church libraries. This will make the minutes of the years available to all 
the churches, and these bound volumes will grow more valuable with each passing 
year. 

Although our Association has had Historians almost from the date of its organi- 
zation still the Clerk was not able to find the history of any church recorded in the 
Minutes until 1921. Just why the sketches of other years were not incorporated in 
the Minutes is inexplicable. 

At the 1874 session of the Association it was decided to elect a Historian annually. 
The Minutes of 1875 record that "The report of the historian was adopted and 
ordered to be recorded in the 'Book of Records of the Association.' " No trace of 
this book exists. The historical sketches from 1921 are shown in the Minutes as follows:

SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

The suggested theme for the Sunday School Program of Southern Baptist for 
1951-52 is again "Take Your Family to Sunday School.'' This theme is a challenge 
to every pastor, Sunday School worker and to every member of every family. God 
blessed us with a great increase this past year in enrollment, attendance and baptisms. 
We must hold high these goals for the year ahead. 

There ought to be at least 500,000 net enrollment this year; 200,000 additional 
complete families in our Sunday Schools; 2,000 additional churches with a full- 
time program of work; and an ever expanding Bible-Teaching Program for all the 
people. There must be provision in every church for every member of every family. 

Six dated priorities are set before us this associational year by Southwide Sunday- 
School leaders. They are as follows: 

1. At promotion time provide more adequately for intermediates and young people. 

2. In October, or thereabout, lead your church to participate in some associational 
group Training Schools. 

3. By late November have a minimum of two new adults classes in your church. 

4. By December 23 provide for a Cradle Roll Class or department in every church. 

5. During March make plans to start a new mission Sunday School is some needy 
community. 

6. During the week of May 4-11 plan for and observe Christian Home Week in 
your church. 

In addition to these priorities we call attention to these important dates and 
activities: 

1. State Mission Day, October 28. 

2. January Bible Study Week ? January 7-11. 

3. Have Home and Foreign Missions Day, March 30. 

4. Have a Vacation Bible School of the ten days or more and sponsor a Mission 
Bible School in May, June or July. 

5. Send some of your Sunday School workers to our Baptist Summer Assemblies at 
Caswell, Fruitland and Ridgecrest. 

6. Provide a copy of The Sunday School Builder for each of your Sunday School 
Officers and Teachers and use it in your regular conferences with your workers. 
If we are to have a net gain of 15 for every 100 church members this year we 

must all be workers in this great undertaking. We must look upon the fields that 
are already white unto harvest and say, "Lord, here am I, send me." God grant 
that we may not fail Him and the people all about us who need His Message of 
Salvation. 

Respectfully, 

E. C. Chamblee 

TRAINING UNIOxN REPORT 

Mt. Zion has had a busy associational year. Reflection upon the success of the 
Sunday School Enlargement Campaign with the associational wide census climaxing 
in the simultaneous evangelistic crusade, is but one example of the fine work done 



26 Eighty-second Annual Session 

by our churches in the past year. Even though our Training Union work may not 
have been so spectacular, I feel that good constructive work has been done. 

One of the high lights of the year in Training Union work was the Enlargement 
Campaign that took place in October 8-13, 1950. We inherited all the work that 
went into the organizing and planning of this campaign, but the blessings that ensued 
from such work have been with us throughout the year. Fifteen churches par- 
ticipated, with a total Training Union enrolment of 1,229. These churches reported 
82 units at the beginning of the campaign. By the close of the week 42 units had 
been added, 107 new leaders enlisted, and 5 new departments organized. The average 
attendance for the week was 908. 

Three Mass Meetings and two Executive Meetings have been planned and carried 
out by this year with a total attendance of over 600 at such meetings. We have been 
self-supporting throughout the year as the Associational Treasurer's report will reveal. 

An outstanding honor was brought to our association when two choirs from the 
tfocutt Memorial Baptist Church, under the leadership of Mrs. John Lambert, won 
he highest possible rating in the State finals of the Hymn festival held at Ft. Cas- 
vell this summer. 

And now a word of heart-felt appreciation must be expressed for the loyal co- 
operation of associational officers, pastors^ Training Union Directors, and members of 
ihe local Training Unions. You have been most cordial in your response throughout 
the year. May the spirit of the Triune God lead us to make this the greatest Train- 
ing Union year in the experience of our association. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Clyde D. Chapman 

STATEMENT FOR REPORT ON NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST 
HOMES FOR AGING 

The North Carolina Baptist State Convention in its November, 1950, session 
authorized the committee on the Home for the Aging to make plans for the opening 
and operation of our Home for the Aging as soon as the committee might find a 
way to meet the cost of equipping and operating. Because of the drive to raise money 
for the construction of the new wing to the Baptist Hospital, the Convention in- 
structed the committee for the Home not to expect direct help from the Baptist 
State Convention during the year 1951. 

On January 9, the committee on the Home elected Rev. James M. Hayes, pastor 
of North Winston Baptist Church, Winston-Salem, superintendent of the Home, and 
Miss Edna Heinzerling, director of Nurses of the Baptist Hospital, to serve as super- 
visor of our Home. The committee decided to open the Homes for residents when 
sufficient funds became available to begin. 

There are many evidences of the Lord's favor upon the Home thus far. In the 
first place, He led in making a home immediately available. Ten years ago the' 
trustees of the Bowman Gray School of Medicine of Wake Forest College leased a 
three-story, brick-constructed, fireproof building, with an elevator, for a period of 
25 years for $1.00 a year. The committee on the Home was able to secure this build- 
ing for 15 years at the same rental price. The building accommodates 20 residents 
at present. The top floor, if completed, would give space for 16 additional residents. 
The completion of this floor would cost approximately $23,000. With more than 100 
applications for admission already received, and inquiries coming almost daily, one 
can easily see the pressing need of more space. 

The Home has been greatly helped by the gifts received— furniture, office equip- 
ment, heating system, blankets, linens, towels, and many other items, as well as 
discounts on supplies necessary to be purchased. Although the Home has been 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 27 

operating only since March 16, yet it now has assets approximating $50,000, and is 
not operating in the red. 

Our residents range in age from 67 to 91 years, and come from widely scattered 
sections of North Carolina— from Franklin to Elizabeth City— the mountains to the 
sea. Regardless of the sections from which they come, they are a happy, congenial 
family, all rejoicing in the opportunity to live in the Home. The attitude of all 
the residents is well expressed in the brief statements of Miss Bertha Callaway, 
former matron of Mills Home Orphanage: "I like this good Christian home"; and of 
Mrs. Carroll: "I wouldn't exchange it for any other." 

The Home offers four things to those who come to live there: security, comfort, 
congeniality, and a Christian ministry. With this sort of program } North Carolina 
Baptists can add years to life, and life to years for those who reside in our Baptist 
Home for the Aging. 

One donor said when he sent his check to the Home: "I believe in this practical 
kind of Christianity. North Carolina Baptists have waited too long to begin it." 
Surely it is practical, for Jesus said: "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the 
least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me." 

The committee on the Home has challenged North Carolina Baptists to build a 
home adequate to meet the need of the increasing number of old people from 65 
years up. Their program calls for a million dollar plant, which would accommodate 
270 residents. With the Lord leading and North Carolina Baptists cooperating, such 
a plant should be built and in operation within a few years. 

"Now also when I am old and grayheaded, O God, forsake me not" (Psalm 71:18). 

BAPTIST PUBLICATIONS 

People are greatly influenced by what they read from day to day. Nothing weals 
a greater influence among our Baptist people than the printed page. It can be a 
wholesome contribution for good or a destructive force for shaping the minds of 
people. We want our Baptist Writers to know that as an association of Baptist 
Churches we believe in the editorial page. It is a sure way for promoting the Chris- 
tian message in our day and generation. We heartily commend our Biblical Recorder 
and its editor; The Commission, our Foreign Missions magazine; Southern Baptist 
Home Mission, the official paper of Home Mission Board; and all our Baptist litera- 
ture published by the Sunday School Board in Nashville, Tenn. What do these 
printed periodicals do for our ministry in the churches and through the home? 

Our Baptist publications bring us together in a great partnership as a denomina- 
tion. Each Baptist is a stockholder in the promotion of the Christian message 
through the printed page. More specifically, the Baptist paper in our state is an im- 
portant link between the people and the church. It promotes unity, missionary 
education and helps to indoctrinate our church members. A church member should 
know why he is a Baptist and the principles for which Baptists stand. In this way 
the publication helps to prevent isms and cults from arising among us and points the 
direction in which our minds are to go. 

All the Baptist publications make the ministry of the pastor much easier. An in- 
formed people means a willing and cooperative people. Our state Baptist paper is a 
sounding board for the church's message and helps to undergird the whole church 
program. We deeply sympathize with any pastor who tries to carry on the ministry 
of a church, whether it be large or small, without the aid and support of our 
Baptist weekly— The Biblical Recorder. 

We urge the pastors and church workers to promote the budget plan of getting 
the paper into the homes of our Baptist people. When Baptist church members be- 



28 Eighty-second Annual Session 

come better informed on the work of the churches, they become better Christian 
leaders.

Since last the association met, two missions have been opened in the Mount Zion

of the Mount Zion Association, was opened on Christmas Eve (December 24), 1950. 
First Baptist Church, Mebane, is the mother church to this mission, and at the 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 29 

present time has received twenty-one (21) members for the mission. The Sunday 
School enrollment now stands at eighty-one (81). 

The second mission, Northside Baptist Chapel, Kirkpatrick Heights, Burlington, 
sponsored by the First Baptist Church^ Burlington, was opened on Sunday, May 6, 
1951. At the present time the mother church (Burlington, First) holds a member- 
ship of eleven (11) persons for the chapel, while the Sunday School enrollment stands 
at 81. 

Numerous announcements and letters are constantly put in the mail from the 
office of the association. An effort is made to help and counsel as well as promote 
the entire program of the State and Southern Baptist Conventions. Time has also 
been given in helping pastorless churches find a pastor. 

In connection with our Vacation Bible School work, we would like to express our 
appreciation to Miss Sarah Peedin, senior at East Carolina Teacher's College, Green- 
ville, N. C, for another summer of fine work in our association. Miss Peedin has 
now spent two summers in VBS work in Mount Zion Association, and has made a 
distinct contribution to this phase of our church work.

Historian's Report 



MOUNT CARMEL BAPTIST CHURCH 

Mount Carmel Baptist Church was organized in 1803 at Prichards 
meeting house a few miles South of University Lake. On May 14, 1814 
Mathew McCauley sold for $1 one acre of land to Abner W. Clapton, 
William Henry Merrit, and Thomas Weaver, for a meeting house for 
Mount Carmel Church. The church house was located on the hill 
south of McCauley's Mill later known as Purefoy's Mill. 

In June 1816 R. T. Daniel who seems to have been pastor, met with 
a few members in the new meeting house and organized for business. 

Mount Carmel Church belonged to the Flat River Association until 
1827 when it joined the Sandy Creek Association. It then had 55 mem- 
bers. The membership remained near this number until the period of 
Camp Meetings around 1836-1840 when this church and other Baptist 
Churches joined in an annual Camp Meeting at Antioch. The member- 
ship was then more than doubled. However, the members of Mount 
Carmel included the Baptist in Chapel Hill and those around Lystra 
in Chatham County. Three other Baptist Churches were organized from 
Mount Carmel: Mount Gilead in 1824, Lystra in 1853, and Chapel Hill 
in 1855. This left the mother church in a weakened condition with only 
35 members. It seemed to have just drifted along until the removal of 
the church building to its present site about 1873. 

The early church was noted for the number of ministers ordained from 
its membership. R. T. Daniels was a local preacher at its organization. 
In 1818 Abner Clapton, who was principal of a preparatory school in 
Chapel Hill was ordained to the gospel ministry. In 1819 James G. 
Hill a student in the University was clerk of the church and later was 
ordained as a minister. Also in the same year Ivanson Brooks another 
student at Chapel Hill, was licensed to preach. Thomas Weaver was 
ordained in 1826 and remained in the Church for many years. In May 
1827, William H. Merrit was ordained and was a member of this church 
until his death in 1850. He was pastor of other surrounding Baptist 
Churches, moderator of the Sandy Creek Association in 1830, 1831, 1832, 
and 1838. He was a noted Evangelist and baptized 100 converts in 
one year. He was outstanding for his contributions to benevolent causes. 
He was a man of means and left in his will a considerable part of his 
estate to Wake Forest College to educate young ministers and to build 
a Baptist Church in Chapel Hill. 

William Hooper, a grandson of William Hooper the signer of the 
Declaration of Independence, who was an Episcopal minister and teacher 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 19 

in the University was convinced of the correctness of Baptist Faith and 
was baptized by Patrick Dowd into the fellowship of Mount Carmel 
Baptist Church in 1831. In 1832 he with Grey Huckabey, another mem- 
ber of Mount Carmel wrote the report on Education at the Baptist State 
Convention that resulted in the founding of Wake Forest College. He 
later taught in Furman University and the University of South Carolina. 
In 1846 to 1848 he was President of Wake Forest College. He was then 
pastor of the Baptist Church at New Bern. At one time he taught at 
Chowan Female Collegiate Institute. In 1875, he retired to Chapel Hill 
where he died in 1876. He is buried beside his Mother and Step-father, 
Dr. Caldwell, president of the University of N. C. 

George W. Purefoy, a noted preacher and son-in-law of William H. 
Merrit, was for a long time a member of this church and one of its 
pastors. He located the church house on the present site. We owe 
much to him for his zeal in the church and for preserving its history. 

The minutes of the church to 1888 have not been preserved but among 
the early pastors were R. L. Daniel, William P. Worrel, Patrick Dowd, 
William Hooper, R. McNabb, Crco W. Purefoy, Enoch Crutchfield, B. 
J. Hockney and D. M. Anderson. 

The following ministers have been pastors since 1870: W. R. Gwatney, 
R. A. Patterson, G. P. Moore, C. C. Newton, D. D. Edwards, W. S. 
Oliver, J. W. Watson, W. A. Smith, A. C. Cree, W. H. Edwards, C. A. 
Upchurch, J. C. Hocutt, A. C. Hambey, R. E. Clark, O. B. Mitchell, 
O. L. Riggs, H. G. Dorsett, J. B. Davis, J. S. McDuffie, C. H. Henderson, 
F. D. Hemphill, J. C. Shore, M. A. Pegram, C. E. Byrd, Thomas Bland, 
W. R. Wagner, and the present pastor Henry A. Morgan. 

Only O. B. Mitchell, W. R. Wagner, and Henry A. Morgan lived in 
the bounds of the church. 

The longest pastorate was that of A. C. Hambey. 

The leading families of the church were Riggsbees, Merritts, Sparrows, 
and Blackwood. 

From the church roll and associational records we find almost 600 
baptisms in the last 75 years, only a few years were there no baptisms. 
Over 100 were received by letter principally from Lystra. But more have 
been lettered off in a large part to Durham and Chapel Hill. For a while 
members were dropped for non-attendance, drinking and profanity. Less 
than 80 have died. The greatest loss has been for just going away. 

The most remarkable advance of the church has been in the last 20 
years. This is shown in the growth of the S. S. number of Church 
Members, giving to benevolence and whole time pastors. This church 
gives from 20% to 50% all money raised to benevolence. It is the out- 
standing country church of the Mount Zion Association. 

R. H. Hutchison. 



Historical Sketches of Mt. Zion Churches 



Brief histories of Mt. Zion churches are recorded in the Minutes of the years as 
herewith listed. The Associate Historian suggests that every church in the Associa- 
tion have copies of the Associational Minutes bound every ten years and keep them in 
the local church libraries. This will make the minutes of the years available to all 
the churches, and these bound volumes will grow more valuable with each passing 
year. 

Although our Association has had Historians almost from the date of its organi- 
zation still the Clerk was not able to find the history of any church recorded in the 
Minutes until 1921. Just why the sketches of other years were not incorporated in 
the Minutes is inexplicable. 

At the 1874 session of the Association it was decided to elect a Historian annually. 
The Minutes of 1875 record that "The report of the historian was adopted and 
ordered to be recorded in the 'Book of Records of the Association.' " No trace of 
this book exists. The historical sketches from 1921 are shown in the Minutes as follows-

SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

The Sunday School Program as given by the Sunday School Board has been followed 
closely by most of our churches and we have shown gains and marked interest by 
all concerned. 

The Pastors in the association have given fine co-operation and we again urge all 
pastors to really go all out with their Superintendents in planning and leading that 
for 1952-1953 our Program will not only bring large numbers into the Sunday School 
but let us all covet together to: 

1. Pray more. 

2. Study the Bible more. 

3. Try to win more lost souls to Jesus Christ. 

Follow the Program and Promotional material as given us by the Sunday School 
Board and we will keep them coming. 

Respectfully submitted, 

H. L. Hamilton. 

TRAINING UNION REPORT 

The theme of our Baptist Training Union work for 1952 has been "Christ Speaks 
to His Churches." During this associational year His call has been heard in many 
ways by His churches and individuals. At the beginning of the year 20 of the 
churches of Mt. Zion had provided Training Union work, and since then at least 
4 other churches have provided this training phase of their church work. Individuals 
have heard the Master speak through the medium of Daily Bible Reading, the estab- 
lishing of a Family Altar, the decision to be more faithful in their support of all 
the services of their church, the decision to give their lives in full-time service of their 
Master. From our Training Unions there have gone out scores of our young people 
into the colleges, many of them into our own Baptist schools. 

During the year we have held the folloAving meetings: 3 executive committee meet- 
ings, 1 Officers' and Leaders' Council, 3 Associational mass meetings. One of these 
mass meetings was our M night gathering last December; we met with the Glen Hope 
church with 825 in attendance, the largest gathering ever reported in our association. 
We had entries in all of the tournaments of our Regional Convention. Rev. Troy 
Jones' son was a winner in Jr. Memory work; Shirley Owens of Hocutt was a winner 
in Y. P. Better Speakers; a junior choir of Hocutt was winner in the Hymn Festival. 

Some activities are being planned for the next associational year. The theme for 
1953 is "Learn from Me." Scripture "Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; 
for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls." (Matt. 
11:29) Aim: To help us to learn and to practice the teachings of Jesus on the steward- 
ship of Life and Possessions: We urge all the churches in our association to observe 
Training Union Enlargement Month in March, to promote the Crusade to enlist 
all church members in Daily Bible readings, to promote the establishment of the 
Family Altar in the homes of their members, to enter the Crusade to increase Prayer 
Meeting Attendance. Our M night meeting will be held on Monday night December 
8th in the Walter Williams High School Building in Burlington. Speakers will be 
Dr. Forrest C. Feezor, former pastor of Tabernacle Baptist Church in Raleigh, now 
pastor of the First Baptist Church in Waco, Texas, President of the Texas Baptist 
State Convention, former Vice-President of the Southern Baptist Convention. The 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 23 

building will seat 2500 people and we are planning for one of the best attended 
M night meetings of the state. We urge every church to have the largest delegation 
present from their church. Avoid any other meetings to be held on M night. 

Only slightly more than half of the churches of Mt. Zion Association have pro- 
vided Training Union work. We hope that more units will be organized in the local 
Training Unions. The pastor is the key person to whom the people look, and his 
enthusiasm will determine, to a great degree, the progress of Training Union work 
in the churches. For that reason we urge the full support of each pastor in the 
Association. Please call on the Associational officers for any help they can give to 
the local Training Union. 

Do You Know that the Training Union 

1. Gets more people to read the Bible than any other organization in the world? 

2. Teaches more people to pray, and gets Ihem to pray publicly and privately than 
all other services combined? 

3. Teaches missions to more people? 

4. Builds the church attendance at the evening preaching service? 

5. Teaches stewardship more effectively than any other organization because the 
member convinces himself by studying and presenting the subject? 

6. Leads more people to become soul-winners, Sunday School teachers, missionaries, 
and leaders in every phase of our church and denominational life and all other 
organizations combined? 

7. Over 90 per cent of our foreign missionaries come from the Training Unions?

REPORT ON NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST HOME FOR THE AGING 

Resthaven, Winston-Salem, N. C. 

Operation of Resthaven was begun March 16, 1951. Soon after the opening, it 
was filled to capacity, twenty residents. When the news spread of the beginning, 
applications began to accumulate rapidly. To date, there have been close to 500 in- 
quiries. Had there been rooms available, and all applicants could have made financial 
arrangements, our Home would have had 200 residents instead of only twenty at 
present. 

There is encouraging prospect of getting the top floor of the present building com- 
pleted, which will provide space for fifteen additional residents. The cost of this 
enlargement project has been underwritten by a business man of Winston-Salem,

who is not a Baptist. This same friend has already donated a television set, and has 
concreted the basement of the Home. 

Our residents range in age from 64 to 92 years, and come from widely scattered 
sections of our State— Franklin to Elizabeth City. All rejoice in the opportunity to 
be in the Home." Here are some of their statements: 

"I like this good Christian Home and all the family. I would not exchange 
it for any other in all the world." Mrs. J. L. Smith, coming from Franklin. 

"This more than we expected about this Home makes us all hope and pray 
that more men and women may come to enjoy its many blessings." Miss Ella 
Moffett, coming from Southern Pines. 

"I never thought I would be so happy in my last years of life." John Holt, 
age 92, coming from Wilson Mills. 

In spite of the fact that Resthaven did not receive financial assistance last year 
from the Baptist State Convention (except a loan which was repaid) , it was operated 
clear of a deficit. How did this happen? By the Lord laying our needs upon the 
hearts of friends and causing them to respond. Of course, the Home was compelled 
to charge the cost of keep from the residents who came on the monthly— pay plan. 
The income from this source, together with that coming from residents giving property 
or cash for their maintenance, plus donations by churches and auxiliary organizations 
and friends, enable the Home to pay its way and to accumulate assets in excess of 
$100,000.00. 

Beginning the year 1952, with the new Nine Year Program, our Home receives 
three-fourths of 1% of the funds to be divided. From this source has come less than 
$500.00 per month since January of this year. The Home is estimated to receive 
a total of approximately $500,000.00 in Nine Years. It is apparent, therefore, that slow 
provision for enlarged facilities will be made to accommodate the hundreds of aging 
people who want to come to our Home, unless funds come from other sources than 
our denominational program as it now operates. 

Our Home presents a great challenge to North Carolina Baptists to provide ade- 
quate facilities. There are probably 100,000 people in our State past 65 years of 
age, and a large number of these are of Baptist faith. We must make provision as 
time and finances permit for these aging Baptists. Since Baptists of our State now 
number more than 700,000 in membership, we are well able to make such provision. 
If every Baptists would give an average of $1.00 to our Home in one year, we could 
raise $700,000.00 and not one person would suffer hardship. As soon as a practical 
and adequate plan of support can be agreed upon, it is reasonable to expect that our 
Baptist Home will be worthily supported. 

Many suggestions have been made as to the best plan of supporting the Home. 
Among them are: (1) Fifth Sunday offerings through the Sunday Schools, as the 
Virginia Baptist Home plan; (2) special day offering, as the Mother's Day plan for 
our Baptist Hospital; and (3) putting the Home in the local church budget, and 
appealing to the churches that have no budget for at least one special offering a year. 

Either of these plans, supplemented by such special gifts as may come from 
individuals and corporations, and provision made in will, would enable the Home 
to make reasonable progress, and thus enlarge our facilities on the pay-as-you-go plan. 

We are closing our report with a statement made by a prominent furniture manu- 
facturer, Mr. B. C. Philpott, of Lexington, N. C. 

"I consider this one of the most important forward steps the Baptists of North 

Carolina have taken in a long time because it is indeed a great move and one 

that has been neglected all too long. 

"Mrs. Philpott and I want to have a part in this fine undertaking, and herewith 

you will find my check for one thousand ($1,000.00) dollars, which we desire used 

as a memorial to our son, B. C. Philpott, Jr.

BAPTIST PUBLICATIONS 

Dr. W. R. Cullom once said that the greatest compliment ever paid him was by a 
lady in his church who said, "Dr. Cullom, the thing I like about you is that you never 
call on us to believe anything until you give us something to believe." The purpose 
of our Baptist Publications is to inform our people and to inspire them to go forward 
in the Lord's work. If we would have an enlisted people we must first inform them. 
We are not interested in anything unless we know something about it. Our people 
are reading and it is our responsibility to see to it that they have the proper reading 
material. Southern Baptist Publications are among the best available today. 

The Sunday School Board was established for the purpose of producing, for our 
churches, literature that would be sound in principal and inspiring in contents. This 
Board has kept faith with our people, but their efforts will be largely in vain unless 
we lead our people to read our own publications. The Home Mission Board pub- 
lishes its own magazine, Southern Baptist Home Missions. Last June they published 
for distribution 142,000 copies of this magazine. The purpose of this magazine is to 
inform our people concerning Home Missions. The Foreign Mission Board publishes 
The Commission, 5,000 copies per month, and through its pages inform our people 
of the work of Foreign Missions. Charity and Children, published by our Orphanage, 
serves to inform our people about our work with Orphans. Our Baptist State paper, 
The Biblical Recorder, goes into over 50,000 homes every week. 

Our Editor, Dr. L. L. Carpenter, has given to North Carolina Baptists the finest 
State paper to be found. He seeks to inform our people concerning all the work 
Baptists are trying to carry on. Each week he writes thoughtful and inspiring edi- 
torials. The paper carries special articles on current happenings which will effect the 
Religious life of our people and trys to present the facts in a clear, unbiased manner. 
We would go on record as commending Dr. Carpenter and his entire staff for their 
efforts expended in giving to us such a paper as The Biblical Recorder, and would 
urge our churches to do all they can to get our paper into the homes of our people.

REPORT ON NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST HOSPITALS, INC. 

"And he healed many that were sick"— (Mark 1:34). This statement refers to the 
ministry of Jesus when he was here in the flesh. Also, it describes the ministry of our 
Baptist Hospital today, where hundreds of sick people go each week in search of 
relief from disease and sickness of almost every nature. In many cases they go as a last 
resort when hope has all but failed. 

Last year our Hospital cared for more than 10,000 people as bed patients. There 
were 95,000 visits made to the clinics for examinations and treatments. A large num- 
ber of these were people who could not pay for the care they received. An average 
of 15 operations are performed each day, or 5,371 last year. Much of this service 
could not have been provided without the help of our Mother's Day Offerings. Last 
year there were 185 people from the Mount Zion Association who visited the Out- 
patient Department of our Baptist Hospital. Twenty-five of these were bed patients, 
and a portion of the expenses of these visits was free service. 

Listed in the 1951 Minutes of the Mount Zion Baptist Association are thirty-nine 
churches. We have been unable to get reports from one of these churches— the Efland 
Baptist Church— and we are informed that they do not have a Sunday School. Two 
churches have joined the Association since last year, making a total of forty-one 
churches who are members of our Association, and forty of these have reported to me 
a Mother's Day offering to the Baptist Hospital. In addition to these churches who 
are members of our Association, there is one church in Alamance County from whom 
we get a report and who has made a Mother's Day offering to the Hospital regularly 
each year. Thus, there are forty-one churches who have been contacted and from 
whom we have received reports for the years 1951 and 1952. 

These forty-one churches from whom we get reports have been very cooperative 
in sending in their reports. They reported to me a total of $5,260.57 for the year 
1951 and $5,315.40 for the year 1952. Actually, however, the Hospital received a total 
of $5,405.22 for the year 1952. According to the figures furnished me by the Hospital, 
ten of the churches sent in more money than they reported for the Mother's Day 
offering and two churches— one reporting $41.67 and the other reporting $69.82— have 
not yet sent in their offerings, or at least the records at the Hospital do not indicate 
that a Mother's Day offering was received from either of these two churches for 
1952. I am planning to contact the delegates from these two churches and see if the 
records are correct. Had these two churches sent in their offering, or at least, if these 
offerings had been counted by the Hospital, the total Mother's Day offering from 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 29 

the Mount Zion Association would have been $5,516.71 for 1952. Your Baptist Hospital 
committee is proud of this showing. 

One of the outstanding features in connection with this report, we think, is that 
every one of the forty-one churches reported an offering for both years— 1951 and 
1952, and we hope it will develop that the offering was sent in to the Hospital, or 
that it will be sent in within the near future. 

We believe that if the Baptists of North Carolina had been fully informed of the 
needs of our Baptist Hospital and had been given the opportunity to make an offering, 
we would have had a total offering for the Hospital of around $250,000 instead of the 
approximately $150,000 which was given this year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Walter M. Williams. 

REPORT ON CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

Our twenty-six Baptist bodies in the United States today can be traced to the 
Baptist churches which emerged around 1611 from the Anabaptist movement on the 
continent of Europe, a left-wing current of the Reformation, which had espoused basic 
democratic principles in religion: e.g., "the priesthood of all believers," "believer's 
Baptism," "the Scriptures as the sole authority in matters of religion," "the autonomy 
of the local congregation," "separation of church and state," "the right of private 
interpretation in religion," and "freedom of worship." 

It is no historical accident that the men who founded the Anabaptist movement 
were well trained and educated men. Such liberal principles in religion could not have 
been developed by those who were unfamiliar with the historical streams of thought. 
Conrad Grebel, the Anabaptist leader in Switzerland, was educated at the University 
of Paris and the University of Vienna. Balthasar Hubmaier, the Anabaptist leader 
in Germany held the degree of Doctor of Theology. In England, the Baptist move- 
ment was led by Dissenters who broke with the church of England, among the very 
first being John Smyth, who was an ordained minister of the Anglican Church and 
who held his M.A. degree from Christ's College. 

After the Baptist movement appeared it suffered all the restrictions imposed upon 
the Dissenters in England. Among the restrictions were the closing of the doors of 
the Universities to Dissenters. This meant that Baptists did not have access to 
higher education. By 1679 the Baptists of England were smarting under the educa- 
tional restraints imposed upon them. It was in this year that Edward Terril of 
Bristol, an educated Baptist layman of considerable means who (of all things!) 
studied the scriptures for himself in the original Hebrew and Greek, directed in his 
will that the bulk of his property should go to support a minister at the Broadmead 
Baptist Church in Bristol who should be "well skilled in the tongues, to wit, Greek 
and Hebrew" and that three half-days a Aveek this good man was to devote "to the 
instruction of young men, not exceeding twelve members of any baptized congrega- 
tion in or about Bristol, for two years at most." Out of this benefaction came Bristol 
Baptist College, probably our first Baptist institution of higher learning. Why had 
his educated layman been moved to such an act? There are two answers. First, he 
believed that all ministers should know Hebrew and Greek in order to make intelligent 
interpretations of the Scriptures; and, second, he records that it is a reproach against 
the Baptists by the Presbyterians that their ministers were not brought up at the 
University. There was a reason for such a charge then. But there are no reasons 
today why Baptist ministers should not be highly trained and educated for the work 
of preaching the Gospel; except, the indifference of individual congregations, the 
flagrant disregard of high standards by committees on ordination, and the lack of a 
sense of dedication to the highest on the part of the men themselves. Other denomi- 
nations have set up stiff requirements for ordination which cannot be fulfilled without 



30 Eighty-third Annual Session 

many years of preparation. No governing body can impose high standards upon Bap- 
tists. They must be self-imposed by each congregation and each minister. The 
Christian ministry is a challenge to not only the strongest in character but also to the 
finest in intellect. The Gospel of Christ must not be made a laughing-stock through 
an ill-prepared clergy because some men are in too big a hurry to undergo the rigid 
intellectual and spiritual discipline required for a well qualified ministry. Our Baptist 
churches ought not to encourage the formal ordination of any man, however good 
he may appear, until he has qualified himself by both university and seminary training. 

The charge hurled by the Presbyterians against the Baptists and which stung good 
brother Terril into leaving all his estate to the training of Baptist ministers is a charge 
which has often been flung at Baptists. However, be it said where anyone can hear 
it, there have been many conscientious ministers, laymen and congregations who have 
sought to lift the level of our denomination by founding colleges and promoting 
Christian education. Baptists today in the United States have more money invested in 
education than any other denomination in America. Baptists in the North and South 
together have one hundred universities, junior colleges, academies and theological 
seminaries in operation. In the Southern Convention we have some 52 colleges and 
junior colleges, six seminaries and one W.M.U. training school. In North Carolina 
Baptists have six colleges and junior colleges; viz., Wake Forest, Meredith, Mars Hill, 
Campbell, Gardner-Webb, Wingate and Chowan. There are some four thousand 
(4,000) Baptist boys and girls studying in our North Carolina Baptist Schools and 
colleges. 

We cannot but say here that Baptists have a tremendous responsibility for these 
boys and girls, a responsibility to provide for them the very best according to the 
highest educational standards in a Christian atmosphere. We also cannot help but 
say that Baptists have a tremendous responsibility for the Baptist boys and girls in 
State universities and other private schools. There are over 1200 Baptist students, 
your boys and girls, at Chapel Hill, out of a total enrollment of 5,600 students. 
There are 636 Baptist girls at the Woman's College in Greensboro out of an enroll- 
ment of 2,362, over 25% of the student body. At State College in Raleigh the pro- 
portion of Baptist students is even higher, 1,197 Baptists out of an enrollment of 
3,929 students. In our State University alone we have some 3,000 Baptist students 
to whom we owe a Christian responsibility and a denominational responsibility. We 
would do well to remember that we must provide a strong Baptist program in all 
college centers, for the truth of the matter is that thousands of Baptist students could 
not go to Baptist schools, even if they wanted to, because there is no room for them. 
Hundreds of other Baptist students cannot go to our own schools because we are not 
equipped to provide the technical training or graduate study required in their fields. 
Only Baylor University, our Baptist university in Texas, is just beginning to give a 
post-graduate degree in limited fields. 

Altogether Baptists in the South have a total educational investment in endow- 
ment and property of more than $145,000,000.00. Five out of six Baptist pastors 
received their college training at one of our Baptist colleges. Of the 827 missionaries 
appointed by the Foreign Mission Board 806 (97.5%) attended a Southern Baptist 
College. Our denomination is rightfully training her leadership. 

Baptists have undertaken in North Carolina a vast educational program which 
calls for an ever larger and larger outlay of money. We are head over heels in an 
educational movement which will require all the resources we can command, and 
then some. There are two factors which are fast changing the educational picture 
in America. Both of them stem from the revolutionary social and political changes 
which are in the making. First, there is the limit being placed on incomes in the 
higher brackets by the government's taxation program. This tendency will reduce more 
and more in the future large estates and fortunes to a common level. Private schools 
will no longer have sources to tap for large endowments. Second, the recognition 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 31 

on the part of government for its responsibility in providing higher education for 
the masses means that out of our government treasuries there will be appropriated 
larger and larger sums for state operated educational institutions. This will mean 
from the standpoint of equipment and faculty that denominational schools and private 
schools will have increasingly hard sledding to maintain proper educational standards. 
It is our opinion that it would be far wiser for us to be concerned about lifting 
the scholastic level of our Baptist schools and stepping up their quality rather than 
in merely multiplying the number of poor schools. Our vast program of Christian 
education in the Baptist denomination must be laid again and again upon the con- 
sciences of our people. Let us increase both our gifts and our prayers to the end that 
Christ may rule both the minds and the hearts of men. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Samuel Tilden Habel.

Mount Zion Baptist Association 3: 



REPORT OF MISSIONS COMMITTEE 

Fairview Baptist Missions was organized by John W. Lambert and the Missions 
Committee of the Mt. Zion Association. 

The first service was held December 24, 1950. Sunday School attendance was 16. 
Among the preachers who have helped Mr. Lambert with the Mission are L. H. 
Hollingsworth, R. L. Councilman, W. A. Pearson, John Hagwood, Aubrey Quaken- 
bush, H. D. Booth, and others. 

August 1951 the Missions Committee and the Mission began discussing plans for 
the purchase of a lot on Highway 70 for a new building, as they had out-grown the 
present one. 

The lot was purchased for S2,000. In the mean time, the Mission called Rev. 
James L. Clegg as full time pastor. 

The building was begun and on August 31st the first service was held. The Sunday 
School enrollment is now 106. The contributions have gone over S4,000. The build- 
ing is not complete but Avork is still progressing. 

Mrs. C. W. Sharpe, 
Secretary of Missions Committee.

Mount Zion 



Baptist Association 



North Carolina 



1953 



MOUNT ZION 
BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

North Carolina 

EIGHTY-FOURTH ANNUAL SESSION 

held with 

The Altamahaw Baptist Church 

and 

The Mars Hill Baptist Church 

October 13 and 14 

1953 



The next annual session will be held with the First Baptist Church 

of Hillsboro on Tuesday, October 12, and the Chapel Hill Baptist 

Church on Wednesday, October 13, 1954. 



Annual Sermon J^ext Tear 

Dr. Charles E. Maddry, Preacher First Church, Hillsboro 

Rev. E. C. Chamblee, Alternate Grove Park Church, Burlington 




Left to right: Mrs. Flonie Cooper Williams, Walter M. Williams, 
Miss Fannie Williamson. 

Dedication 

By action of the Association, in session at the Mars Hill Church, near Hillsboro, 
Wednesday, October 14, 1953, these Minutes are dedicated to Mr. and Mrs. Walter 
M. Williams and Miss Fannie Williamson, pictured herewith. 

These persons have been actively and faithfully identified with Baptist work in the 
Mount Zion Association for many years. Miss Williamson, for over 50 years a faithful 
worker, is listed in the 1904 minutes as a messenger from Haw River Church to the 
Association meeting with Cedar Fork Church, in Durham County. She helped form 
Hocutt Memorial Church in 1913, and has been active in the work of that Church, 
and of the Association, to the present. 

Mr. Williams first attended the Association in 1909, when it met mith the Mars 
Hill Church, and has not missed a session since. No session was held in 1918. He 
served as Moderator of the Association for ten years, 1923-32, and has been a tower 
of strength among Mount Zion Baptists for 45 years. 

Mrs. Williams has been a constant source of strength for her husband, and a 
Baptist leader in her own right. Thus hers has been a dual role in Mount Zion Associa- 
tion through the years. It is altogether proper for us to thus honor these faithful 
workers by dedicating our 1953 Minutes to their honor, rather than waiting to some 
future time and dedicating them to their memory.

reported that there were still ten churches which had not sent in

been prepared. The churches were asked to get in the letters as 
soon as possible. He explained that Mr. Settle had encountered 
great and unusual difficulties in getting the 1952 Minutes printed, 
because his office secretary, who was arranging and typing the 
material, had resigned in the midst of the work, and left it for Mr. 
Settle to prepare. He reported that the 1952 Minutes had been 
mailed to the churches.

liams, and is included in the book of reports in these Minutes. He

the Baptist Hospital, who spoke concerning the the work of our 
hospital. He reported that the new wing was almost ready for

of the hospital to the sick.

Fathers."

10. Associational Missionary E. C. Wilkie presented an oral 
report on the Baptist Orphanage, stating that the written report 
would be handed to the Clerk. He then presented Superintendent 
W. C. Reed, of the Orphanage, who spoke of the work Baptists are 
doing for homeless children. He stated that we ministered to 728 
children in our two homes last year, and provided for 214 others 
in private homes, through Mother's Aid. He reported that nearly 
all of the buildings have been renovated and some new buildings 
constructed, including a new church building at Mills Home, now 
nearing completion. He also said that a new church building is in 
prospect for Kennedy Home. 

11. The Moderator recognized Dr. C. S. Prickett, who presented 
the report on the North Carolina Baptist Homes, which report is 
included in the book of reports in these Minutes. He then moved 
the adoption of the report, which was seconded and carried. He 
introduced T. Sloane Guy, who has recently come to the Baptist 
Hospital as chaplain, who spoke on our work among the aging 
people. He reported that the number of elderly people is increas- 
ing, and many of them are not able to take care of themselves when 
they are retired from active vocations. He cited the large number 
of Baptists in North Carolina as indicating a corresponding re- 
sponsibility for caring for our aging people. 

12. The period for Business and announcements was announced 
by the Moderator and the Clerk was recognized. He read applica- 
tions from the Fairview Baptist Church, Hillsboro, and the Fellow- 
ship Baptist Church, Alamance, for membership in the Association. 
The motion and second that these applications be received and that 
the two churches become associate members of the Association 



16 Eighty-Fourth Annual Session 

were made in order, and by vote of the messengers present they 
were received. It was explained that after investigation by the 
Executive Committee during the year, if found to be sound and 
co-operative, they could be voted into full membership at the next 
session. 

13. The Clerk read the text of a proposed change in the consti- 
tution, which he said would be presented for a vote tomorrow. The 
change is as follows : "Article 16. The Executive Committee shall 
consist of twelve members, elected annually. In addition to these, 
the following officers of the Association shall serve as ex-officio 
members of the Committee: Moderator, Vice-Moderator, Clerk,

quoted the New Hampshire Confession of Faith, which was brought 
out about 1830, and then expounded on three major points: The 
Bible is timeless and universal, The Bible is our supreme standard, 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 17

closing prayer, thanking God for our blessings and adjourning the 
session for lunch. 

FIRST DAY — AFTERNOON SESSION 

22. The Moderator called the Association into session promptly 
at 2 : 00 o'clock, and led in singing, "Rescue the Perishing.'' 

23. The worship period was led by R. L. Councilman, who read 
from the fifteenth chapter of John and led in prayer. 

24. The Moderator recognized Mrs. Winfred Overman, who 
presented the report on Baptist Publications. In her report she 
said that the circulation of the Biblical Recorder, our State Baptist 
Paper is now 55,000, and that 360 churches in the State receive it 
on the every-family plan. There are 27 churches in our Association 
that have Biblical Recorder clubs. After a motion and a second the 
Association voted to adopt the report, which is included in the book 
of reports in these Minutes. 

25. Mrs. Overman presented C. W. Bazemore, of Raleigh, Asso- 
ciate to the Editor of the Biblical Recorder, who brought a very 
interesting and informative message on "Reading for Mission 
Vision". He emphasized that right reading will promote mis- 
sionary vision, saying that we have men, missions, message, Mas- 
ter, and means, but lack the motive that will send us into the world 
in missionary endeavor. He urged wider reading of our mission 
publications to help us find this motive. 

26. Chairman E. C. Chamblee, of the Missions Committe, pre- 
sented the report on that work, which was adopted. Copies of 
the Treasurer's report and the proposed budget for next year were 
passed out to the messengers, along with informaton about the 
Baptist Builder's Club. The Associational Missionary, E. C. Wilkie 
spoke concerning his v/ork. Upon motion and second, the Associa- 
tion voted to adopt the budget as presented. The Association was 
gratified to see how the Lord has blessed in the program of mis- 
sions in our Association. 

27. The Moderator recognized the chairman of the Nominating 
Committee, and the Association heard and adopted the report, 
which was nominations for the Associational officers and the Exec- 
utive Committee. The report was adopted, and the names are 



18 Eighty-Fourt h Annual Session 

printed in the directory of the Association at the front of these 
Minutes. 

28. The matter of funds sent in for the Builders' Club was dis- 
cussed, and Dr. Prickett asked a question as to the propriety of 
having two accounts when only one is called for in the Constitution. 
A substitute motion by J. Ii. Waugh, Jr., was seconded and carried. 
The motion authorized the Missions Committee to appoint a treas- 
urer from among its members and that he make his report to the 
Associational Treasurer of all monies that go in or out of this fund. 

29. The Resolutions Committee presented its report, which is 
printed in the book of reports. Wm. A. Poole presented the report 
for the committee, and it was adopted by vote of the Association. 

30. A vocal solo, "Living for Jesus", was rendered by a mem- 
ber of the host church. 

31. Dr. E. L. Spivey, Secretary of Missions for North Carolina 
Baptists, was the concluding speaker for the day, bringing a mes- 
sage on State Missions. He read from Acts 1 :8, and spoke earnestly 
and convincingly about our need for missionary vision and activity. 
He cited neglected areas of missionary need: rural missions, 
rapidly growing areas near military camps, the Baptist Student 
Union, the Allied Church League for the Abolition of Beverage 
Alcohol, and our Radio ministry. He then cited some areas which 
have been largely by-passed in our mission efforts : Negroes, Indi- 
ans, Silent People, and others. After a forceful appeal, he dis- 
missed the Association with prayer, and the meeting was adjourned 
to meet tomorrow at Mars Hill Church. 

SECOND DAY, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1953 
Mars Hill Baptist Church, Route 1, Hillsboro 

MORNING SESSION

on L. A. Nail to lead in prayer. 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 19 

34. The Clerk made an announcement concerning registration 
and asked for the letters from two churches which still had not 
turned them in. 

35. The Sunday School Teaching Program was presented by 
E. C. Wilkie, for H. D. Booth, who has moved to another state. He 
made a forceful appeal to our people to bend every effort to build 
up the Sunday Schools, and cited the large number of new Sunday 
School rooms added to the church buildings during the past year. 
He urged us to do our part for a "million more in '54." 

36. The Training Union Report was given by Director C. D. 
Gattis, Sr., and was adopted by vote of the Association. 

37. The Brotherhood report was given by H. E. Hines, Asso- 
ciational President. He explained how a Brotherhood will help a 
church and its men and its pastor. He told how to organize a 
Brotherhood in a church and gave three reasons that every church 
needs a brotherhood: (1) It develops a reservoir of men available 
for service in the church, (2) It offers a means of enlisting men in 
the activities of the church, and (3) It presents fine training values 
for the laymen in the church. By vote of the Association his report 
was adopted and is carried in the book of reports in these Minutes. 

38. Walter M. Williams was recognized and gave the report on 
Place and Preacher for the next year's meeting of the Association. 
Five churches invited the Association to meet with them next year : 
Hillsboro First, Chapel Hill, Burlington First, Antioch, and Mount 
Adar. Since two of these churches are observing their centennial, 
the committee recommended that we meet with them. They are: 
Hillsboro, First, celebrating its centennial in November of this 
year, and Chapel Hill, celebrating its centennial in April of next 
year. They recommended as preacher of the annual sermon, Dr. 
Charles E. Maddry, of Hillsboro, with E. C. Chamblee, of Grove 
Park, as alternate. Upon motion and second, the Association adopt- 
ed the report. 

39. Miss Annie Strowd presented the Woman's Missionary 
Union report, which was adopted by vote of the Association. 

40. Mr. Walter M. Williams was recognized by the Moderator 
and stated that he first attended Mount Zion Association in Mars 
Hill Church in 1909, and that he had not missed a session since. 
No session was held in 1918. He stated that Dr. Charles E. Mad- 



20 Eighty-Fourth Annual Session 

dry, serving his second term as pastor of the Hillsboro First 
Church, was once pastor at Mars Hill and led in the building of 
the present building about fifty years ago. He then read from the 
Minutes of the session of 1904, in which Miss Fannie Williamson 
v/as listed as a messenger from the Haw River Church. The Asso- 
ciation met that year with Cedar Fork Church, Durham County. 
Miss Williamson, for the past forty years an active member of 
Hocutt Memorial Church in Burlington, was present and recog- 
nized by a standing ovation. 

41. The Association sang a hymn, "When I Survey the Won- 
drous Cross." 

42. Personal testimonies were given by two laymen. Mr. A. C. 
Starling, of the Glen Raven Church, spoke on "The Living Word 
in my Business", giving a sincere and convincing testimony as to 
his conversion and how his faith in Christ helps him in his busi- 
ness. Mr. Hamilton Wiggins, of Southside Church in Burlington 
(now re-named Kinnett Memorial), spoke on "The Living Word in 
My Home." He also told of his conversion and how his Christian 
faith had changed his home for the better. Both of these testi- 
monies were earnest, sincere and convincing, as well as inspiring to 
the Association. 

43. Pastor W. R. Eaton, of the host church, invited everyone 
to stay for lunch and explained the facilities of the church. 

44. The Moderator recognized E. C. Chamblee, who made a 
motion that the 1953 Minutes be dedicated to Mr. and Mrs. W. M. 
Williams and Miss Fannie Williamson, in recognition of long and 
useful service in the Association. The motion was seconded and 
carried by a standing vote. 

45. Mr. Charles Walker, Jr., sang a solo, "The Love of God", 
after which the Moderator presented Dr. Harold W. Tribble, Presi- 
dent of Wake Forest College, who spoke on "The Living Word in 
Christian Education." 

He prefaced his message by telling of progress of the building 
of the new campus of the College at Winston-Salem, and of crowded 
conditions on the present campus, due mainly to the fact that 
Southeastern Seminary now has some 345 students, who are living 
there and studying in the Seminary. After defining "The Living 
Word" and "Christian Education", Dr. Tribble made four major 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 21 

points in his message: (1) The Living Word gives to Christian 
Education its true objective, (2) It gives Christian Education an 
adequate motive, (3) It will give us a scale of values for Chris- 
tian Education, and (4) It can serve as a dependable guide for 
Christian Education. Dr. Tribble closed the morning session with 
prayer. 

WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON SESSION 

46. The Moderator called the Association into session at 2:00 
o'clock, and led in singing a hymn "I Am Thine, O Lord."

the Committee on standing committees, who read the report.

committees are listed in the Directory of the Association in these 
Minutes.

the report of the Resolutions Committee, which was adopted by 
the Association. The report is printed in the book of reports in 
these Minutes. 

50. The Associational Director of Training Union, C. D. Gattis, 
Sr., was recognized and presented nominees for a full slate of offi- 
cers for next year. The report was adopted by the Association, and 
these officers are listed in these Minutes. 

51. The Associational Historian, R. H. Hutchison of Moore's 
Chapel, was recognized and presented his report, which was a his- 
tory of the Mars Hill Church. Upon motion and second the report 
was adopted by the Association and is carried in the book of re- 
ports in these Minutes. 

52. During the Miscellaneous Business period, the Executive 
Committee recommended that the Association receive Staley Me- 
morial Church as a full and regular member. This Church was 
admitted as an associate member last year and has been a co-oper- 
ating church during the year. Upon motion and second the recom- 
mendation was adopted and the Church was welcomed into full 
fellowship in the Association. The Pastor, S. L. Greeson, was rec- 
ognized. 



22 EIGHTY'FOURTH ANNUAL SESSION 

53. The Executive Committee presented a recommendation that 
the Association invest in a home for our Missionary, instead of 
renting a home as is done at present. After a motion and a second, 
followed by some discussion, the Association voted to empower the 
Executive Committee to act on this matter when and if they can 
find a suitable house in which to invest, and which, in their judg- 
ment, we can afford. 

54. The Committee on Constitutional Changes presented for 
action a proposed change in our constitution, which was read to 
the Association on yesterday, and which referred to the addition 
of several ex-officio members to the Executive Committee. After 
motion and second, followed by some discussion, the change was 
adopted by the Association and is so carried in the copy of the 
Constitution in these Minutes. 

55. The Association joined together in singing "My Faith 
'Looks Up to Thee." 

56. The Moderator introduced L. A. Parker, pastor of the Ashe- 
boro Street Church in Greensboro, and President of the Allied 
Church League for the Abolition of Beverage Alcohol, who spoke 
to the Association on the subject, "The Living Word and Temper- 
ance." He cited some alarming facts, among which were these: In 
1940 there were 40 million drinkers in the U. S. A., but by 1951 
these had increased to 67 million drinkers. He stated that in 1951 
Americans spent 9 billion dollars for beverage alcohol, but only 
2 billion dollars for all church contributions. He stated that the 
liquor forces have divided us, so that even in the churches there is 
not agreement on what we ought to do to fight the liquor traffic. 

57. The Moderator introduced Warren T. Carr, pastor of Watts 
Street Church in Durham, who spoke to the Association on the 
subject: "The Living Word and Public Morals." He brought a 
thoughtful, stimulating and challenging message. 

58. The closing prayer was led by Dr. C. S. Prickett, after 
which the Moderator declared the eighty-fourth session of the As- 
sociation adjourned.

wish to express deep appreciation for the fine work done during the summer 
by Miss Carolyn Fowler when she came to us for a period of six weeks and 
did an outstanding job of leading our Daily Vacation Bible School Program. 

Two outstanding developments growing out of our Mission program during 
this past year were the opening of the Edgewood Mission down between Haw 
River and Mebane and the instigation of the Mount Zion Builder's Club. The 
work at Edgewood has progressed rapidly under the leadership of Pastor 
W. A. Smith, and under the sponsorship of the Swepsonville Church a new 
Building is now nearing completion at the mission, and the organization of a 
Baptist Church there is imminent in the near future. 

Respectfully submitted, 
E. C. Wilkie, Missionary 



24 ElGHTY'FOURTH ANNUAL SESSION 

ASSOCIATIONAL MISSIONS 

It has been the policy of your associational missions committee this year 
to promote all the Causes of our Lord within the bounds of the Mt. Zion Asso- 
ciation. Among these fostered, through the leadership of our very capable 
and energetic missionary Rev. E. C. Wilkie, have been the establishment of a 
mission Sunday School and preaching station at Edgewood on 70 highway near 
Mebane; the promotion of all denominational causes through the associational 
organizations, and setting in motion the Baptist Builders' Club for the erec- 
tion of buildings for new missions. Our committee has met bi-monthly to con- 
sider all matters in this program and to furnish necessary assistance and en- 
couragement to the missionary. 

Associational missions is a cooperative effort on the local level of our 
churches to expand the Kingdom of God. This is a vital and urgent work. 
Let every church and every Baptist in the bounds of the Mt. Zion Association 
do all possible to suport this undertaking through your committee that more 
Sunday Schools and preaching stations may be started and that the mission 
of Christ shall be carried out here at our very doorsteps.

BAPTIST BROTHERHOOD 

The number of active Brotherhoods in our Association is now 9, with a 
total enrollment of 424. The number of meetings the past year were 79. Among 
the activities of our Associational Brotherhood were the following: (1) A 
Brotherhood Clinic, conducted by our State Secretary, Mr. Horace Easom. 
The first session was at Hocutt Memorial Church and involved a discussion of 
plans and methods to be used in organizing a Brotherhood. The second ses- 
sion was at First Church, Burlington, and involved a discussion of Christian 
Witnessing by Laymen. (2) A number of Layman's Revivals were conducted 
in local churches. 

It is our hope that an active Brotherhood organization can be initiated in 
every church in the Association. There are three distinct advantages in having 
a Brotherhood in a local church. The first is the opportunity of Christian 
Fellowship among the men of the church. They can get acquainted, get to 
know the pastor better, and enjoy preparing and eating meals together. The 
second advantage is that a body of men are made available to the church in 
promoting the total church program, and they become stronger church mem- 
bers by studying our Baptist program and doctrines. The third advantage is 
training. Men are developed as leaders in the life of the church. 

Let us endeavor to organize a Baptist Brotherhood in every one of our 
churches this year. No church is too small or too large to have one, and any 
church will be strengthened by a good Brotherhood. 

Respectfully submitted, 

H. E. Hines. 

REPORT ON NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST HOMES FOR AGING 

The youngest member of our Baptist family of institutions, the North 
Carolina Baptist Homes, Inc., has had the best year since it began operating, 
March 16, 1951. 

Resthaven, with space for twenty residents, has been filled to capacity. 
The number of inquiries for rooms has increased into the hundreds. 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 27 

The Home received its best financial support. The share received from 
the Nine Year Program (1952) was $14,062.80; our first Special Day offering, 
February 15, exceeded $52,000; and from individuals, churches, and auxiliary 
organizations we have received $12,380.33, as of August 1st. 

The response to the first Special Day offering for the Home was most 
encouraging. More than half of our 3,055 Baptist churches responded. About 
seventy-five per cent of the amount came from the smaller churches. 

Considering the short time our Home has been operating (2 years), and 
the fact that this was the first opportunity to appeal to our churches for a 
special offering, all of us should be encouraged by the response. Our next 
Special Day offering, February 21, 1954, should amount to $100,000. 

On June 18, this year, property was purchased for a Branch Home at 
Albemarle. This property, consisting of a vacated hospital building and a 
nurses' home building and nearly three acres of land, was purchased for 
$25,000. It will cost an equal amount to renovate the property. Even so, it is 
well worth twice the amount invested. Thus, we can care for 60 residents — 
20 at Resthaven, Winston-Salem; and 40 at the Albemarle Home. 

At the time of purchase, it was hoped that the branch home would be 
ready for operation by October 1, this year. 

The general health of the residents has been exceptionally good, consid- 
ering the range of their ages, 66 to 93. There has been only one death this 
year. The spirit and the general attitude of the residents have been most 
satisfactory. 

There are many evidences of increasing interest in our Homes. Pastors, 
conducting worship services, have brought delegations from their churches to 
share the inspiration of worship with our residents. Auxiliary and Sunday 
school groups have frequently visited us to conduct devotional services. Gifts 
of supplies and cash are often received from these various organizations. 

Plans for the future enlargement are encouraging. With a general Special 
Day offering in February, 1954, and other special gifts from individuals and 
corporations, we should be ready to begin construction of our administration 
building, which would give us room for fifty additional residents, and making 
our total capacity 110 residents. 

Since North Carolina Baptists now number more than 700,000 members, 
with thousands of our constituency now over 65 years of age, we should keep 
in mind the great number of our elderly brethren who need a home to provide 
security, comfort, congeniality, and a Christian ministry. Our North Carolina 
Baptists are able to meet the challenge to make adequate provision for the 
aging, and as "laborers together with God," we can meet it. 

"Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength 
faileth."— Psalms 71:9.

REPORT OF NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST HOSPITAI^-1953 

"If Thou wilt, Thou canst make me clean," was the leper's plea that 
touched the heart of Jesus. A like plea from the sick multitudes who need 
help has touched the heart of North Carolina Baptists. Our ministry through 
our Baptist Hospital is our answer to this call. 

Ten thousand, eight hundred and seventy-three patients were cared for in 
our Hospital last year, for a total of 91,002 days of patient care, while thou- 
sands of others were seen in the Clinics. Almost half of these were service 
patients, unable to pay the full cost of the care they received. These included 
old people at the sunset of life and little children at the dawn of life, mothers, 



EIGHTY-FOURTH ANNUAL SESSION 



fathers and young people. They included persons who had to have help if 
they were to carry on as mothers and wives in their homes, if they were to 
work as fathers and husbands to support their families, if as young people 
they were to be set free from handicaps for life, if as old people, they were 
to be spared for additional years and from much of the suffering which often 
attends old age. With all the advance of medical science, there is still much 
that it cannot do; but our Baptist Hospital is making a large contribution 
toward the saving of life, the relieving of suffering, and the bringing of good 
health for those who need it most. 

From all over North Carolina there is a constant stream of afflicted people 
coming seeking our help. Our Hospital provides skilled specialists for them 
in the various fields of medical care. The demand is so great that it is never 
safe to go without an appointment in advance. The schedules of the Clinics 
and doctors are almost always completely filled by appointments made days 
and weeks and often months ahead. If it is an emergency case the family 
doctor should call the Hospital and talk with a doctor who will arrange for 
the patient to come as soon as possible. 

There were forty-one churches from whom we received reports last year 
on the Mother's Day Offering — total offering was $5,405.22 for that year. The 
offering on Mother's Day this year as reported to me by forty-three Sunday 
Schools was $5,462.20. We hope that all the Sunday Schools and Churches 
sent their offerings in promptly, direct to the North Carolina Baptist Hospital, 
Winston-Salem, N. C. 

One of the most important parts of the program of the Hospital is the 
spiritual ministry it provides. This is necessary if the full needs of a sick 
person are to be met. Our Hospital has trained chaplains who render an 
effective ministry for the sick, guidance for the nursing and medical students, 
and training for pastors and Christian workers. 

Three floors of the New Hospital Wing are nearing completion and should 
be ready for use this year. This will provide urgently needed space and facili- 
ties, giving the Hospital a capacity of 450 beds, including bassinets. If any 
church in the Association has not contributed its part toward the building of 
the New Wing, we hope this will be done at once. 

Sunday School is conducted in the amphitheatre from 9:30 to 10:00 A. M. 
each Sunday for patients, visitors, hospital personnel, and student nurses. 

Vespers are conducted for the same group in the amphitheatre on Thurs- 
days at 6:30 P. M. and for students and hospital personnel in the Nurses' 
Home on Mondays. 

The Hospital provided free service in the amount of $340,387.95 in addition 
to free doctor's care to needy persons in 1952. This was rendered to patients 
in the Hospital and the Out-Patient Clinic and was made possible by individual 
contributions, welfare agencies, the Duke Endowment — and, mainly, through 
the Mother's Day Offering. The amount of the Mother's Day Offering deter- 
mines largely the amount of help the Hospital can give. 

"If Thou wilt, Thou canst make me clean." Jesus replied, "I Will." You 
and I answer, "I Will," if we give as we should in our Mother's Day Offering. 
This determines how much help we provide for those who are sick and have 
little or no money. Let all of us answer with a generous, "I Will," next 
Mother's Day. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Walter M. Williams. 

N. C. BAPTIST ORPHANAGE— ANOTHER GOOD YEAR 

Again your Orphanage has moved forward in its ministry of Child Care. 
During the year we served a total of 728 children. In addition to this our 
Social Service Department helped to adjust 214 children with relatives, and 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 29 

thus prevented them from having to be cared for by the Institution. Your 
program includes Mills Home of Thomasville, Kennedy Home of Kinston, 
Mothers' Aid, and Boarding Homes. The Baptists of North Carolina probably 
provide more services for children than any other similar group in the nation. 

Practically all of our many children developed normally. There was very 
little sickness and none of a serious nature. In the schools at Thomasville and 
La Grange they were well adjusted, and their records compare favorably with 
the average of all other children in these schools. Twenty-four were gradu- 
ated from high school in June. We believe they will make a worthy contribu- 
tion to their generation. 

We have been particularly pleased with the spiritual development in our 
two Homes. During the year fifty professed faith in Christ and were baptized. 
Another thirty accepted Christ as Savior, but were not baptized until early in 
this year. 

Added to our many other activities we have promoted the greatest building 
and renovating program in the history of the Orphanage. A new cottage, a 
new Print Shop, and a new Infirmary were completed in 1952. The I. G. Greer 
Recreational Building was finished early in 1953, and a beautiful new Church 
that will seat 580 people will be completed this year. Then we have completely 
remodeled some of the old cottages and made them into good living quarters 
for the children. This great building program was made possible by the 
money left to Mills Home in the will of the late Robert M. Idol. In my report 
next year I hope to be able to say that the Building and Renovating Program 
is finished. When this is done, I doubt if any Child Care Agency in America 
will have more adequate facilities than the Baptists of North Carolina. 

The income for the year was good. It was slightly above the income for 
the previous year. Truly we can say, "God is good to us, and through North 
Carolina Baptists He has lifted the burdens from the shoulders of many of 
our fine boys and girls." 

W. C. Reed, General Superintendent. 

REPORT ON BAPTIST PUBLICATIONS 

Christian literature is a tremendous force in the lives of our people today. 
In our own country virtually all persons read, and what they read is largely 
what they believe. Glorious opportunities are ours to crusade for Christian 
literature. If we fail to meet such opportunities, our Baptist people and 
Baptist work will suffer untold harm from little vision and lack of knowledge. 

In days of old, the prophet Hosea said, "My people perish for lack of 
knowledge." Today the devil is exploiting as never before, the power of the 
printed word. The mails, the news-stands, and too many homes, are loaded 
with the ugly tide of bad books, periodicals, magazines cleverly designed to 
delude people, to promote cheap diversions, to glorify worldliness, to encourage 
Sabbath-breaking and liquor sales with all its attendant evils, and to under- 
mine Christianity in general. 

To meet this evil flood of bad literature we have a marvelous array of 
well printed, sound Baptist periodicals, Sunday School and other Christian 
publications for every age, spiritual interest and need. Perhaps no denomi- 
nation in America has so fine a selection of Christian literature as Southern 
Baptists have today. Let us urge our people to read our denominational liter- 
ature along with the Bible in order that they might be well-informed. The 
Orphanage, the Sunday School Board, Home and Foreign Mission Boards are 
publishing exceptionally good literature to enlighten our people and give 
them a mission vision. The aim of it all is to inform, enlist, indoctrinate, 
unify and inspire our people for faithful service in our Lord's name. Our 
Christian literature must be magnified and promoted in all churches if God's 
work is to go forward. 



30 Eighty-Fourth Annual Session 

In our own state, the Biblical Recorder is the one publication covering the 
entire field of our co-operative efforts as Baptists. Without our State Baptist 
paper a successful promotion of all our Baptist work would be almost impos- 
sible. For 120 years the Recorder has been going into Baptist homes with its 
weekly message. Wise pastors, associational missionaries, Sunday School su- 
perintendents and many other leaders have over the years promoted its cir- 
culation, and they have rejoiced at the many visible fruits of good reading. 
People do more when they know more. As they read, they lead. As they are 
informed, they are inspired. The present circulation of the Recorder is approx- 
imately 55,000. The paper should be in every Baptist home. We are grateful 
to our pastors and other church leaders for their interest and co-operation in 
promoting the paper. 

We hope that all pastors, superintendents, deacons, W. M. U. and Training 
Union leaders and others will do all they can to encourage the Every-Family 
Plan in every Baptist church, or at least a good-sized Recorder Club. At pres- 
ent there are 360 churches using the Every-Family Plan and over 1,150 
churches with Clubs. Mt. Zion Association now has 29 Recorder Clubs. Let us 
remember in prayer those who seek to be of service to us through the printed 
page. In Proverbs 23:23 we are urged to "buy the truth, and sell it not; also 
wisdom, and instruction, and understanding." 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. Winfred Overman. 

MARS HILL BAPTIST CHURCH HISTORY 

Mars Hill, the fourth oldest church in the Mt. Zion Association 
was an arm of Cane Creek prior to 1830. In that year a deed was 
made by John Freeland to Stephen Justice and John Reaves, dea- 
cons of Cane Creek, and to the people worshipping in the meeting 
house, for two acres where the present Church House is located. 
$20 was the price paid by Thomas D. Watts. 

On the fifth Lord's Day in June, 1834, Stephen Pleasant and 
Levi Andrews constituted the Mars Hill Baptist Church with 10 
members, 4 males and 6 females. John Mitchell was clerk, H. G. 
Parrish and John Redding were deacons. Alvis Durham with the 
two deacons were the messengers to the Beulah Association. All 
male members were active. Stephen Pleasant was the first pastor. 
He served for 6 years and received $15 while pastor. During these 
six years one by one converts were baptized until in 1840 there 
were 29 members. 

George W. Purefoy was pastor from 1840 to 1850 and received 
$5 per year. Annual revival meetings were held and in ten years 
the membership had grown to 107. 49 of these were slaves. 
They were converted at the revivals and baptized with the white 
converts. During this time the simple rectangular log house was 
replaced by a frame building providing a separate door for men 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 31 

and women. One end was cut off by a long bench behind which 
was an entrance door and benches for the colored members. 

After 1850 there were several short pastorates until Frank M. 
Jordan became pastor in 1857. It was during this time in 1853 
that 15 members were granted letters to form the Baptist Church 
in Hillsboro. 

In 1857 the pastor held a revival meeting at Green Springs at 
the close of which 15 converts were baptized and at the next church 
conference in November they were granted letters to form Green 
Springs Baptist Church. 

Frank M. Jordan was pastor and Evangelistic Missionary for 
20 years. When not pastor at Mars Hill he was asked to assist in 
the revivals. During the war and just after for many months there 
were no recorded meetings. From November, 1882, until August, 
1886, Mars Hill was without a pastor. However preaching and 
revivals were held. The low ebb of the church was in 1892 when 
there were only 33 members. Some had moved to town, others had 
united with other denominations. 

During the ebb and flow there were admirable sparks of spiri- 
tual life. When there was no money to pay the pastor, someone 
collected grain after harvest and hauled it to him. Even before the 
Civil War the pastor and from three to five members attended the 
Baptist State Convention. At one time the pastor was excused for 
a while to canvass for Wake Forest College. As early as 1841 col- 
lections were sent for missions. In 1869 the church adopted a sys- 
tematic New Testament plan of giving. Each member was to lay 
by in store and bring it to the church quarterly. The church then 
designated the mission to which it was to be sent. This plan was 
followed for a long time. 

Each year messengers attended the Beulah Association. Some- 
times as far away as Mt. Airy. A man would often be away from 
home from five to seven days. 

If a member drank too much he was to report it inside of two 
months or he was excluded. One time a candidate for membership 
was not received for lack of a satisfactory experience. One mem- 
ber was received when she had been excluded from a primitive 
church for taking the Lord's Supper with a missionary Baptist 
Church. 



Eighty-Fourth Annual Session 



In 1876 Mars Hill was lettered off from the Beulah Association 
and joined the Mt. Zion Association. 

As well as could be made out from the minutes and letters to the 
Association the pastors were Stephen Pleasant, George W. Pure- 
foy, A. D. Blackwell, Aaron Jones, B. G. Hackney, Frank M. Jor- 
dan, F. H. Jones, John H. Vernon, W. L. Wright, J. W. Watson, 
R. A. Moore, A. W. Crabtree, A. J. Taylor, N. B. Cole, J. F. Mc- 
Duffie, Wade D. Bostic, J. C. Hocutt, Charles E. Maddry, A. C. 
Hamby, J. A. Hackney, Ira E. D. Andrews, R. E. Clark, J. R. 
Green, S. W. Oldham, W. R. Reach, J. R. Cantrell, C. A. Caldwell, 
A. K. Cheek, W. T. Smith, W. H. Rittenhouse and William Eaton. 

The deacons were H. G. Parrish, John Redding, H. C. Strowd, 
Alvis Durham, John Jordan, J. W. Holloway, Andrew A. Compton, 
Jesse Miller, Joseph Walker, J. W. Riley, C. M. Walker, J. F. Cole- 
man, D. N. Mincey, Lone Mincey, Roger Wilson, J. M. Kenyon and 
Edd Oakley. 

The clerks were John Mitchell, H. G. Parrish, James Ward, 
William J. Ward, Jr., William Ward, Sr., John Jordan, Jesse Miller, 
A. A. Compton, C. M. Walker, J. L. Coleman, W. E. Oakley, J. E. 
Walker and J. M. Kenyon. 

Mars Hill has grown from a log cabin to the present church 
house built during Dr. Maddry's pastorate, from 10 members to 
178, from once a quarter preaching on Friday to full time and from 
a budget of $6 to one of $4,317.

MOUNT ZION BAPTIST BUILDER'S CLUB 
To All Pastors and Other Interested Church Leaders: 

The MOUNT ZION BUILDERS' CLUB was voted upon by the Association 
during its 1951 session — receiving the full endorsement of the Association, but 
the proper steps to activate the plan were never taken. 

Our Missions Committee recently recommended that steps be taken imme- 
diately to get this plan operating in light of the pressing needs for such a 
club within our Association. We are seeking now to do just that, and seek 
your hearty and willing cooperation — asking that you present the matter to 
your people and strive to get them enrolled as active members of the club. 

The purpose of the club is to make available on call a good sum of money 
to be used from time to time, as the need and opportunities arise, by our mis- 
sions Committee for investment in new buildings at mission stations over the 
Association. THE MONEY WILL BE USED ONLY FOR THIS PURPOSE 
—THAT IS, TO HELP NEW CHURCHES GET STARTED. The initial 
need, of course, in beginning any new work is to have a place to meet and 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 33 

organize — and mission work is often stymied because of lack of funds, and 
in almost every case is at least greatly delayed. This club represents a real 
mission opportunity for mission-minded people right here within our own 
borders, and I hope that you will present it to your people in that light. 

HERE ARE THE PERTINENT FACTS CONCERNING THE CLUB: 

1. $2.00 is required to constitute a membership in the club — upon reception 
of which an official membership card will be issued signed by the chairman of 
the Missions Committee. 

2. Members will agree to pay up to $10.00 a year into the club if the need 
arises. No one payment will be over $2.00 — that is, at each call for funds, 
each member will respond by remitting $2.00, AND NOT OVER FIVE CALLS 
CAN BE MADE BY THE CLUB DURING ANY ONE GIVEN YEAR. 

3. The initial membership dues of $2.00 counts on the first year's total. 

4. Any individual may join the club. 

5. Any organization within your church, such as a Sunday School Class 
or W. M. U., may take out a membership — and are urged to do so, though 
not to the neglect of the individual memberships. 

6. Any member can resign from the Club at any time he chooses. 

7. Any member, of course, can pay the entire $10.00 for a year in a lump 
sum. Such liberal joining is encouraged — and anyone who desires to donate 
over the $10.00 in any one year will not be shot at dawn for treason! 

8. The funds will be administered by our Missions Committee. Faithful 
records will be kept and a full report made to the Association each year — as 
well as through our monthly bulletin Views From Mount Zion. 

9. You are asked to keep records in your own church also — set a file on 
the Builders Club and constantly seek to enlarge it. THE CLUB WILL BE 
A CONTINUING AFFAIR FROM YEAR TO YEAR. 

10. It is our desire to find at least 1,000 members in this initial drive, 
and it will take the vision and effort of all of your people to reach it — but I 
believe we can do it — AND WILL! 

11. Send funds collected to B. M. Simmons, Box 526, Graham, N. C. Believe 
me, Brethren, this is a real and vital mission opportunity for all — Pray over 
it— think it through— ask questions if vou are in doubt— BUT DO WORK FOR 
THIS THING— THE LORD WILL BLESS YOU AND YOUR PEOPLE— AND 
HIS KINGDOM WILL BE EXTENDED, AND THAT IS WHY WE ARE 
HERE! 

Yours In Him — E. C. Wilkie, Asso. Missionary.

SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

The Sunday School program of the Southern Baptist Sunday School Board 
has been followed by most of our Churches during the year, and there has 
been steady and substantial growth. Some eight or ten of the churches have 
built additions to their buildings to care for growth in the Sunday School. 
We now have 44 Sunday Schools in our Association, whereas in our annual 
report four years ago we had only 37. Our total enrollment is now 12,096, 
whereas it was 9,645 four years ago. This is steady and even rapid growth, 
for it represents a gain of 2,451 in four years, or better than 25 per cent. 

Our Sunday School program for next year is built around the theme, "A 
Million More in '54," and in order for us to do our part in this great effort 
of Southern Baptists we must reach and enroll an additional 2,000 persons 
in our Sunday Schools. This is a gigantic undertaking, even in the face of 
our fine record the past four years. May we bend every effort to reach this 
number. 

Our Vacation Bible School enrollment has increased from 3,222 in 1949 
to 3,447 this year. Miss Carolyn Fowler, our Summer Student Worker, helped 
us to reach such a large number. 

Our Associational Sunday School Superintendent, Rev. H. D. Booth, of 
the West Hill Church, has moved to a pastorate in another state, and this 
report has been compiled by the Clerk of the Association. 

Tom M. Freeman, Clerk. 

TRAINING UNION REPORT 

In Matthew 11:29 we read "Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for 
I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls." This 
scripture was the basis for the theme of all our Training Union work for 
1953, "Learn From Me." This theme has been the central thought around 
which the writers of our Training Union literature have built the programs for 
our weekly meetings on unions, departmental assemblies and conferences for 
Church, Association, Region and State assemblies. Our pastors have used the 
monthly themes and around them have built inspiring sermons. The litera- 
ture provided by our Sunday School Board of Nashville, Tenn. for our Train- 
ing Union program is the best provided by any denomination. 

This theme was launched by our association in our "M" Night meeting 
last December 8th in Burlington when 36 churches were represented in the 
total attendance of 1,276. In total attendance for an "M" night meeting our 
association was third in the state and 35th in the Southern Baptist Conven- 
tion, of which we can be grateful. 

During the year we have held the following meetings: 3 executive commit- 
tees meetings, one officers and leaders council and two mass meetings. Our 
association sent contestants to our regional convention to participate in the 
Junior memory work. Intermediate sword drill, Young Peoples better speak- 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 35_ 

ers, Adult scripture reading and Hymn Festival. In a hasty digest of the 
letters to the association I found we have a gain of one church with Training 
Unions, while the enrollment has increased to 2,111 of a net gain of a 96, and 
a gain of 257 in average attendance. The greatest values realized in the lives 
of our members from the Training Union program cannot be measured by 
statistical tables. To mention a few, Daily Bible Reading and Family Wor- 
ship, praying in public, standing on their feet and expressing their thoughts 
on Missionary, Devotional, Doctrinal and Bible study topics. In Training 
Union we become the best trained member of our church because we learn 
to do by doing. The Church depends upon the Training Union to furnish dea- 
cons, teachers and leaders for every department of the Church. 

During the year 1954 our theme will be "Keeping the Faith." Scripture 
passage "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept 
the faith." (2 Tim. 4:7). Aim: "To help us to keep faith with the faith." The 
1954 program will be launched in another great mass meeting on Tuesday 
night, December 8th in the Walter Williams High School in Burlington. Our 
speaker will be Dr. J. C. Canipe, head of our state department of evangelism 
and director of Fruitland Bible Institute. We urge all of the churches to plan 
for a weeks study on stewardship during this quarter. In cooperation with 
our Southern Baptist program, we will stress "Light the Church Houses" and 
help reach 3,000 additional churches for Training Union work in 1954. Pas- 
tors and leaders of the churches of our association who have not made provi- 
sion for Training Union work, your church will not step out ahead of its lead- 
ership. Call on your associational officers to help you in any way we can. We 
await your call. 

Respectfully submitted,

W. M. U. REPORT— OCTOBER, 1953— MARS HILL BAPTIST CHURCH 

"Open my eyes to visions girt with beauty and with wonder lit. But let me 
always see the dirt and all that spawn and die in it. Open my eyes to music; 
let me thrill with spring's first flutes and drums. But never let me dare forget 
the bitter ballads of the slums." 

These words by Louis Untermyer suggest to us the opportunity woman's 
missionary union gives of expanding our horizons and keeping our hearts 
open to the needs of the world. 

The ordinary observer sees the world today as a world of confusion and 
human tragedy, a world in which established orders are going to pieces and 
civilization itself is threatened with collapse. If we stop here, it is truly a 
dark picture. But to those who see the world through the eyes of God see it 
as a world in which God himself is moving to accomplish his purpose of 
achieving righteousness among all men everywhere. And this gives us hope 
and something to live for and even to die for if need be. 

The late Dr. M. Theron Rankin in his report to the foreign mission board 
last April said that World Christianity is standing at the open door of mis- 
sionary advance, but we have not yet entered. What we have done so far has 
just brought us to the door. He raised the question, "Dare we follow God 
on through the open door of advance?" The door that leads us to see all peo- 
ple of the world as He sees them. To accept with Him the responsibility for 
all men of the world which He accepted in Jesus Christ. To share in His 
purpose to create of all men, new men in Christ. 

Are we, members of the woman's missionary union of Mt. Zion Associa- 
tion, ready to accept this challenge of advance on through the open door 
with God? Are pastors, Sunday School Superintendents, deacons, and all other 
members of our churches ready to support the efforts of Woman's Missionary 
Union and to join in with us in the advance in World Missions? 



36 Eighty-Fourth Annual Session 

We have chosen as our watchword this year: "Declare his glory among' 
the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples. What opportunities of 
advance, this watchword opens up to us in the year ahead!" 

There are many signs of progress in the work of Woman's Missionary 
Union of this association and I am so grateful for all of it. Four new mission- 
ary societies in one year adding four more churches to our roll is enough to 
thrill the heart of any superintendent. But there are always two sides. 

In 1949 we had a missionary society in 30 of our churches and today we 
have one in 37 of our churches. But we still have five churches with no mis- 
sionary organization. In 1949 we had 1,472 enrolled in missionary societies 
while today we have about 1,675. Last year 31 churches gave $5,526 to the 
Lottie Moon Christmas offering for foreign missions. This was good, but 11 
churches did not report any gifts to this offering. This year we have 28 socie- 
ties reporting that they have studied at least one mission study text, but what 
about the other 14 churches. This year we have 32 churches reporting some 
young peoples work, but this leaves 10 churches without any missionary or- 
ganization for its young people. This year we have had reported about 620 
tithers among our women and 192 among our young people. Of course this is 
a very small per cent of our W. M. U. population. 

I could go on and on telling about the various phases of our work, but I 
am sure you cannot remember the details and the figures. I hope, however, 
that you have grasped the idea from these facts that while some of our 
churches seem ready to enter the door of missionary advance to declare his 
glory among all nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples, that some 
have not even reached the door. What responsibility have we as an associa- 
tion to our churches? Do we not covet for all the enriched program offered 
by our denomination and enjoyed by us? Let us not be satisfied until we have 
carried the program of Woman's Missionary Union to the last of these 
churches remembering that the program embraces all of our young people as 
well as all of our women. 

And let us remember, too, the three-fold object of the Woman's Missionary 
Union of North Carolina. There are so many activities in our various 
churches, so many worthy endeavors, and I am sure that we of the Woman's 
Missionary Union want to help and do help in all of these other organizations 
and activities, but when we come to our missionary society, let us say to our- 
selves: these 3 things we do: and let me state our three-fold object: (1) To 
stimulate a broader Christian development on the part of women and young 
people of the state (let us say of our association) to train and enlist all in 
Christian service, especially soul winning. (2) To receive and distribute mis- 
sionary information, to promote missionary organizations among women and 
young people. (3) To encourage the earnest cooperation of women and young 
people in systematic contribution of money for missions at home and abroad. 
What a worthy object — and how much as a society can we do if we do it well. 
Have you said "no" to an invitation to be a counselor of a young people's 
organization this year? Perhaps you have not been asked to lead young 
people, but at the same time you know that somebody should be leading the 
young people of your church. Won't you go back and volunteer your service. 

Last year only 25 of our societies reported that 75 per cent or more of 
their members were contributing regularly to the cooperative program. We 
need to encourage our people to give systematically and to tithe. 

Do we use the opportunities that come for witnessing and soul winning ? 
I want to tell you the story of Peter and Luke Lin. (Story Omitted). Accord- 
ing to the story there was a missionary at the mission, there were the chil- 
dren at play, there was the nurse on the job, there were souls finding Christ, 
there was a boy hearing and accepting the call to Christ and Christian Serv- 
ice. This is life — this is opportunity. Let us in all phases of our work this 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 37 

year seek to declare his glory among all the nations, his marvelous works 
among all the peoples."

Miss Annie Strowd.

Historical Sketches of Mt. Zion Churches 



Brief histories of Mt. Zion churches are recorded in the Minutes of the 
years as herewith listed. The Associate Historian suggests that every church 
in the Association have copies of the Associational Minutes bound every ten 
years and keep them in the local church libraries. This will make the minutes 
of the years available to all the churches, and these bound volumes will grow 
more valuable with each passing year. 

Although our Association has had Historians almost from the date of its 
organization still the Clerk was not able to find the history of any church 
recorded in the Minutes until 1921. Just why the sketches of other years were 
not incorporated in the Minutes is inexplicable. 

At the 1874 session of the Association it was decided to elect a Historian 
annually. The Minutes of 1875 record that "The report of the historian was 
adopted and ordered to be recorded in the 'Book of Records of the Associa- 
tion.' " No trace of this book exists. The historial sketches from 1921 are 
shown in the Minutes as follows:

DEDICATION 

By action of the Association, in session in the First Church, Hillsboro 
Tuesday, October 12, 1954, these Minutes are dedicated to Dr. and Mrs. Charles 
E. Maddry, Pastor of the First Church Hillsboro. 

Dr. Maddry is c'o'ing a notable and fruitful ministry at the Hillsboro 
Church. His first pastorate was in this church, over 50 years ago, and after 
serving- his denomination as Executive Secretary of the Baptist State Con- 
vention of North Carolina and as Executive Secretary of the Foreign Mission 
Board of the Southern Baptist Convention, he retired, and then came back 
to Hillsboro to beautify the present building and erect a beautiful and com- 
modiuG educational building. 

Through his rich and fruitful ministry Mrs. Maddry has stood by his 
side and carried out a ministry of her own that has blessed many. Fount Zion 
Association feels fortunate that these golden years of the Maddrys have been 
spent with them, and out of love and deep appreciation these Minutes are 
dedicated to them.

Letters from 44 of the 45 churches have been received. Using

Sunday School, we make the following report: 

Baptisms — 507 — a loss of 122 from last year. 

Church membership — 12,974 — a gain of 301 over last year. 

Sunday School enrollment — 12,737 — a gain of 641 over last year.

3,881, a gain of 434 over last year. 

Training Union enrollment, 2,349 — a gain of 318 over last year. 

We have 30 churches with Training Unions, a gain of 5 for the year. Our 
enrollment has grown by nearly 1,000 since 1949. 

Woman's Missionary Union — We have 39 churches with W.M.U. work, a 
gain of 2 churches, and 3,367 enrolled, a gain of 343. 

Baptist Brotherhood enrollment is 542, a gain of 118. We now have 16 
Brotherhoods, a gain of 7 for the year. 

Church Property of the 45 churches is valued at $2,705,170, which is a 
gain of $387,286 for the year. Our churches spent $200,955 for new buildings, 
equipment and church debts during the year. There is still total debts in the 
aggregate of $225,816 on the churches. 

Total offerings for Missions: $112,621— a gain of $13,830 or 12.28%. 

Total offerings, all causes: $632,195— a gain of $40,076 or 6.32%. 

Outside of capital funds for building and equipment, our churches con- 
tributed nearly 36% of their offerings to missionary causes. Our people gave 
at the rate of $48.73 per member for all causes, and $8.70 per member for 
missionary causes. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Tom M. Freeman, Clerk 

7. The Vice-Moderator appointed the following committees : 

Nominating Committee : Warren Kerr, Chairman, Elmer Cates, 
Dr. Carlton S. Prickett, Miss Rebecca Crawford.

Mount Zion Baptist Association 15 



Byrd, Mrs. A. B. Webster. 

Committee on Place and Preacher : C. H. Stanfield, Chairman ; 
Dr. S. T. Habel, Dr. J. T. Dobbins. 

8. Dr. J. C. Canipe, State Secretary of Evangelism, was recog- 
nized, and addressed the Association on "Promoting the 1955 
Simultaneous Crusade." He stressed that three forces are out to 
dominate American life : Communism, Secularism and Catholicism. 
But he emphasized that Southern Baptists have in the proposed 
nation-wide crusade of evangelism a program that comes from 
God. He thrilled and inspired the Association with his message. 

9. During the period devoted to Business and Announcements 
several committee meetings were announced. The applications of 
the Northside and Edgewood Baptist Churches were presented by 
the pastors and were received by the Association. 

10. Pastor Ralph A. Wilson presented the report of the Com- 
mittee on Constitutional Changes. After considerable discussion, 
the following was adopted by vote of the Association and is incor- 
porated in the copy of the Constitution on page 8. 

(1) We recommend that article 13 be changed to add "Choris- 
ter" and "Three Trustees" in the proper place. 

(2) We recommend that article 16 be amended to add "Choris- 
er" and "Chairman of Trustees to the Executive Committee. 

(3) We recommend that article 17 be made to read as follows: 

"At the annual meeting the Moderator shall appoint a Committee 
on Committees, which shall, at least thirty days before the next 
annual session, appoint and cause to function at the proper time 
all committees as authorized under article 13 above ; provided, how- 
ever, that all nominations made by such committees shall thereafter 
be subject to further nominations from the floor." 

(4) We recommend that the present article 24 be renumbered 
"Article 26" and that a new article 24 be made to read as follows: 
"The Chorister shall be responsible for the arrangement and con- 
ducting of all music at the annual sessions, or any special sessions 
of the Association." 

(5) We recommend that present Articles 25 and 26 be renum- 
bered "27 and 28". 



16 Eighty-Fifth Annual Session 

(6) We recommend that a new Article 25 be created, to read as 
follows : 

"The Trustees shall hold title to the property of the Association 
and convey and use the same as directed by the Association or its 
Executive Committee. They shall have the powers granted to trus- 
tees of religious societies by the laws of the State of North Caro- 
lina, subject to the will of the Association. They shall make full 
and detailed reports to the annual meetings of the Association. 
They shall elect their own chairman and secretary. Any vacancies 
occurring in their membership between sessions of the Association 
shall be filled by the Executive Committee." 

11. Associational Missionary E. C. Wilkie introduced the new 
pastors in the Association since the last session. They were R. D. 
Spear, of Edgewood, Tom C. Williams, of Antioch, Henry B. Stokes, 
of Carrboro, all of whom were present. Harley Anderson, of Oak 
Grove, and Frank McGuire, of Ossipee, were not present. 

12. The Association sang a hymn, "Jesus, Saviour, Pilot Me." 

13. The report of the Associational Missions Committee was 
given by Dr. W. T. Smith, of Mebane, and it is included in the 
book of reports in these Minutes. The report, and the proposed 
budget for the next year, were adopted by vote of the Association. 

14. Associational Missionary E. C. Wilkie reported on his year's 
work, and copies of the Treasurer's report for the year were dis- 
tributed to the messengers. He spoke forcefully on the work, and 
the Association was gratified to see how the Lord has blessed in 
the program of missions in our Association. His report was adopted 
after motion and second. 

15. The messengers sang, "Stand Up for Jesus". An offering 
was taken to aid in producing the Minutes and in supplying the 
clerk's salary. It amounted to $37,58. 

16. Mr. W. H. Walker, of the Host Church, gave instructions 
concerning the noon day meal and the rest rooms and drinking 
fountains in the church. 

17. The Youth Choir of the Host Church sang, "Did You Think 
To Pray?" 

18. Pastor J. H. Waugh, Jr., of Kinnett Memorial, read the

Scripture lesson from Acts 8:1-4, and led in prayer. 

19. The annual sermon was delivered by Pastor E. C. Cham- 
blee, of Grove Park Church, in Burlington, using the text, "They 
that were scattered abroad went everywhere preaching the word." 
His theme was "New Men With a Great Compassion." He stated 
that these early disciples had an experience with Christ, a convic- 
tion of the resurrection of Christ, and were persecuted by the 
world. They put feet under the Great Commission of Christ because 
they believed in their Master, their message, and their mission. It 
was an inspiring and challenging message. 

20. The Vice-Moderator, Mr. A. G. White, led the closing prayer 
and offered thanks for the noon day meal, after which the meeting

To the Mount Zion Baptist Association 

Dear Christian Friends : 

On September 26, 1954, the Edgewood Baptist Church held 
its second annual homecoming celebration. At that time this 
letter was presented and addressed to you. 

As we celebrate our second anniversary, the members and 
Pastor look back to all the aid and encouragement we have re- 
ceived from the Association. The idea of a Baptist Church in 
our community was in the hearts of Christian people for some 
years, but it was two years ago today that it began to bear fruit. 
At that time the Associational Missionary, Rev. E. C. Wilkie, 
gave us the needed impetus, and then with the leadership of 
God and the aid of our mother church, Swepsonville Baptist 
Church, we started to live. Help has continued to come from 
all sides, and today we give a great deal of the credit to the way 
God has been using His dedicated servants in this Association. 

We continue to thank God for your witness and look forward 
to the service we may share together. 

Your fellow-servants, 

The Edgewood Baptist Church 

36. Pastor Henry A. Morgan moved that the late Mrs. R. E. 
Heath be memoralized with a picture and suitable words on the 
page in the Minutes devoted to a list of the deceased. Motion 
carried. 

37. Jack M. Euliss gave the report on the Baptist Orphanage, 
which was adopted by the association on vote of the messengers, 
and is carried in these Minutes in the book of reports. 

38. The Rev. W. Isaac Terrell, Pastor of the Mills Home Bap- 
tist Church, spoke on the Orphanage. He emphasized that the entire 
program at the Orphanage is child centered and that the activities 
of the Orphanage are church centered. After an interesting and 
informative message, he emphasized the importance of supporting 
our Orphanage. 



20 Eighty-Fifth Annual Session 

39. The Moderator closed the meeting and adjourned the Asso- 
ciation until tomorrow morning at 10:00 o'clock in the Chapel Hill 
Baptist Church. Dr Carlton S. Prickett led the closing prayer.

47. Mr. R. B. Todd, of Carrboro, gave a very interesting testi- 
mony on the subject, "The Witness I Received From Others." Mr.

he had been a leader in the Chapel Hill Church for many years, as 
teacher, deacon and Superintendent of the Sunday School, yet with- 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 21 

out ever speaking to anyone about personal salvation. Finally he 
dedicated his life to endeavor to win people to Christ. He was led 
to make a canvass of a large area outside Chapel Hill where he 
found a large number of people who did not go to church anywhere. 
He organized a Sunday School for them in a filling station, and 
finally asked them to choose a church. They chose Mount Carmel 
Baptist Church, and he went there with them. He testified to win- 
ning to Christ people in their 40's, 50's, 60's, 70's, and even 80's. 
His testimony was well received by the messengers.

generations and what they have done, but rather, seizing the best 
of the past, and reverencing those who have gone before us, we 
must strive to prepare ourselves to do our very best in our genera- 
tion. He led the closing prayer, after which the Association 
adjourned for lunch.

HISTORICAL SKETCH OF HILLSBORO BAPTIST CHURCH 

Hillsboro Baptist Church was organized November 19, 1853, by 
T. W. Tobey, Amos Jones and A. D. Blackwood, with 15 white mem- 
bers lettered off from Mars Hill Church. A. Jones was the first 
pastor; H. C. Stroud, clerk; H. C. Stroud and John Cheek, deacons. 
At the first meeting Mrs. Sarah W. Graham, wife of Gov. William 
A. Graham, joined by letter. During the next two years 25 colored 
servants were lettered off from Mars Hill Church to join the Hills- 
boro Church. 

The first preaching by a Baptist in the town of Hillsboro was 
done by Elias Dodson about 1844. He was the pioneer Baptist 
preacher in many of the towns, now cities, of North Carolina. 

He preached in the court house of Hillsboro and when a new 
court house was to be built he bought the old frame building and 
rolled it up the street. It was the first meeting house of the Baptist 
Church in Hillsboro. It was after his early preaching that the 
members that later formed Hillsboro Church were baptized as 
members of Mars Hill Church. Most of the 25 colored members 
were servants of people who were not Baptists but lived in Hills- 
boro. 

Before the Civil War this Baptist Church was a vigorous and 
aggressive group and the church membership had a steady increase. 
However, during and just after the Civil War the church became 
very weak but did not die as some churches did. Loss of members 
by death in the army, difficulties over the new building and finan- 
cial depression caused this decline. 

This church, as did all Baptist Churches of this time, practiced 
strict discipline as to drunkenness, chastity, honesty and faithful 
church attendance. So there were but few questionable christians 
in the church. Attention of the Baptist preachers to the slave has 
resulted in the fact that the colored Baptist church is now the larg- 
est church in Hillsboro. 

Hillsboro Church has had some noted Baptist preachers as pas- 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 25 

tors. Among the 27 or more known pastors are J. L. Carroll, W. R. 
Gwalney, C. C. Newton, Wade D. Bostic, Charles E. Madrey, A. C. 
Hambey, John C. Hocutt, S. W. Oldham and A. K. Cheek. 

Probably the outstanding lay member of the church was Mrs. 
William A. Graham. 

The cornerstone of the present building of this church was laid 
in 1860 but, due to defective brickwork and losses of funds during 
the Civil War, the building was not completed and paid for until 
1869. During the second pastorate of Dr. Charles E. Madrey the 
educational addition was completed in 1953. 

HISTORICAL SKETCH OF THE 
CHAPEL HILL BAPTIST CHURCH 

A look at the churches in North Carolina of one hundred years 
ago one would find the Baptist churches in the country and the 
Presbyterian and Episcopal churches in the towns. Most Baptist 
preachers were educated only in the Bible. However, Mount Car- 
mel Church to which Baptists in Chapel Hill belonged was fortu- 
nate in having educated men of the university among its members. 
Some of the leaders among the Baptists at that time were Abnor 
W. Clapton, William Hooper, James P. Mason, John Hutchins and 
William G. Weaver. 

In 1850 Elder William H. Merritt in his will left property worth 
$1200 to assist in building a Baptist Church in Chapel Hill. An 
arm of Mt. Carmel Church was set up there. In April 1854 the 
Chapel Hill Church was organized in the home of W. G. Weaver 
by Elders T. J. James, George W. Purefoy, J. C. Wilson and B. J. 
Hackney with 40 members from Mt. Carmel Church. That year the 
church building was begun and it was finished in 1855, from the 
donation of William H. Merritt and contributions of the members 
and friends. This first building is now the Masonic Temple of 
Chapel Hill. 

Membership in the church increased until the Civil War. With 
the closing of the university and hard times of the war and recon- 
struction period, the church was at a low ebb. 

A. C. Dixon, as pastor from 1876 to 1879, baptized 117 candi- 
dates which was twice the membership when he became pastor. 
During the succeeding pastorates of M. D. Jeffries, G. B. Taylor, 



26 Eighty-Fifth Annual Session 

J. L. Carroll, L. L. Cleveland, J. W. Wildsman and W. R. L. Smith 
there was an ebb and flow of membership. Up in members or static 
when eight or more were baptized and down when none or less 
than eight were baptized 

In 1915 when W. R. L. Smith baptized 30 the membership first 
reached 200. 

About this time, when it was recognized that the Baptist stu- 
dents of the university would more than fill the church, agitation 
was begun for the Baptists of the state to help build a Baptist 
church building large enough and adequate to accommodate their 
boys when they come to the university. Finally the State and Home 
Mission Boards contributed $102,000 to aid the Chapel Hill Church 
in building the present church building and educational plant. 

During the pastorates of E. L. Baskin, Eugene Olive, O. T. Bink- 
ley, G. P. Albaugh, Das Kelley Barnett, and Samuel T. Habel, the 
church has grown and expanded in usefulness, especially to the 
university students until it is one of the outstanding churches of 
the Association and State.

The work seems to have gone forward along many lines, and all of you have 
made such possible. May we continue to work, pray, and strive tog-ether to 
honor our Lord within the bounds of our great association, not resting on the 
laurels of past achievements, but pressing ever on to greater things for the 
glory of Christ! 

Respectively submitted,

28 Eighty-Fifth Annual Session 

ASSOCIATIONAL MISSIONS 

The command of our Lord is that we go into all the world beginning at 
Jerusalem. Associational Missions is our effort in the Mt. Zion to carry the 
gospel to every creature in and around our Jerusalem. There are many un- 
converted and unchurched people within the bounds of our association. We 
must not slacken our pace until we have established missions or churches 
within easy reach of every person in every community in our territory. This 
will take the cooperation of the already established churches and their pastors 
and an understanding of the purposes of Associational Missions. There is 
great need for every church having a generous share in this undertaking. 
Some of our churches, yet, have not begun supporting this part of our Lord's 
commission. Won't you see to it that your own church supports the Associa- 
tional Mission program regularly (month-by-month) this year? We des- 
perately need more money to purchase property and put up temporary places 
for Sunday School, worship, etc.. as well as more money to purchase a home 
and a Baptist headquarters for the missionary and the mission program of 
the Association. 

Your committee has met at regular intervals this year and planned with 
the missionary, Rev. E. C. Wilkie. the promotion of this work. One of the 
great realizations during the year was the organizing of the Edgewood Mis- 
sion into a duly constituted church in December. 

Let us support our missionary and use him in any of our local churches 
or Associational work that his schedule will permit. We solicit your prayers 
in our behalf.

BAPTIST BROTHERHOOD 

We now have 16 active Brotherhoods in our Association with a total 
enrollment of 542. There were 145 meetings during the year. This is a gain 
of seven Brotherhoods with an enrollment gain of 118. There was one Asso- 
ciational Brotherhood meeting at the First Church, Mebane, with a splendid 
attendance from throughout the whole Association. 

We now have active Brotherhoods in the largest and smallest churches 
as well as in the oldest and newest churches in the Association, filling an 
important role in training and enlisting men in all phases of our church 
activities. Certainly every church needs the visitation-type evangelism car- 
ried out in our Brotherhoods. 

Our aim for this year is to have every active Brotherhood to assist a sister 
church in organizing a Brotherhood.

REPORT ON BAPTISTS HOMES FOR AGING 

This year marks the fourth Associational year of the Baptist Homes for 
the Aging. There are many visible evidences of God's blessings upon this 
important phase of our Baptist program in North Carolina. In this ministry 
we are helping the aging to greater happiness and spiritual fellowship. It 
gives to the maturity of life a divine enrichment in the declining years. As 
Job has said: "Thine age shall be clearer than the noonday; thou shalt shine 
forth, thou shalt be as the morning." 

Resthaven at Winston-Salem was opened on March 16, 1951, and has been 
filled to capacity ever since its beginning. But it can take care of only 20 
people. The Albemarle Home was opened on December 7, 1953, and can accom- 
modate 40 people. The purchase price of the property at Albemarle was 
$25,000 including the Hospital and Nurses Home buildings with three acres 
of land. The cost of renovating this property was about $75,000 and with 
the donation of equipment and many other improvements the property is now 
worth $300,000. This Home is operated by a competent staff under the direc- 
tion of the Rev. Zeb A. Caudle, a former pastor of the First Baptist Church, 
Aberdeen. The program of Christian service with concern for the aging is 
going forward in a marvelous way at this home. 

At Resthaven, under the direction of the Rev. James M. Hayes, Super- 
intendent, an expansion program is in the making. A tract of 34 acres of 
land just outside the city limits in Winston-Salem was bought last year. This 
will be the site for new buildings. An architect has been engaged to prepare 
sketches of new buildings and the first unit will be constructed as soon as 
money and circumstances will permit. This addition will provide more resi- 
dents for aging people, a chapel and offices, a laundry and infirmary, as well 
as other necessities for the Home. 

The general health condition of all the residents in both Homes has been 
good this past year. The age range is from 67 to 94 years. It is a joy 
to note the fine spirit of cooperation on the part of those at the sunset^ of 
life. Surely this is a challenge to all North Carolina Baptists, These aging 
people say to us: "Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not 
when my strength faileth." 

The Special Offering in February of this year was most encouraging. The 
total amount was approximately $70,000. In addition to this Special Offering 
the Homes received $21,000 as their share in the Nine- Year Program of the 
Baptist State Convention. The response in our churches is most heartening 



32 Eighty-Fifth Annual Session 

as more and more they come to have a part in helping to care for our aging 
friends. This calls for our prayers and a larger support among our Baptist 
constituency in the Mount Zion Association and throughout North Carolina. 
We join with these friends in our Baptist Homes and pray that "they shall 
still bring forth fruit in old age and they shall be flourishing." Because "the 
hoary head is a crown of glory, if it be found in the way of righteousness." 

Respectfully submitted, 

Carlton S. Prickett. 

REPORT OF NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST HOSPITAL— 1954 

The Baptist Hospital, originally built as an 80-bed institution, was en- 
larged in 1942 to a capacity of 250 beds and 50 bassinets. A Nurses' Home, 
Out-Patient Building, New West Wing, Children's Wing and Laundry Build- 
ing have been added to the original plant. The Medical School of Wake Forest 
College was built adjoining the Hospital in 1941. 

The New South Wing is now being used as fast as construction is com- 
pleted and the equipment is secured. It will increase the capacity of the 
Hospital to 450 beds, including bassinets. Our Hospital is caring for more 
people this year than at any other time in its history, because of the use of 
the New South Wing, about half of which is now in use. This new building 
provides many new and enlarged facilities which add a great deal to the 
service provided for our people. About 14,000 bed patients will receive 
treatment in the Hospital this year, while many other thousands will be seen 
in the clinics, 

Our School of Nursing has been enlarged, due to the New Building Pro- 
gram, and is now one of the largest in the state. It is fully approved by the 
North Carolina Board of Nurse Examiners, and our graduates have high 
rating wherever they go. We offer a superior type of training which means 
our nursing school can accept only students of the highest caliber. They 
especially want those high grade students of fine Christian character from our 
Baptist homes. Normal enrollment in the school is about 170 students. A new 
class graduates every summer, and a new class is admitted each September. 
The school has graduated 605 nurses since it was opened in 1923. 

The Baptist Hospital with the various schools associated with it, forms 
an important educational center in the field of medical care. It trains doctors, 
nurses, technicians, pastors and other Christian workers. The center of the 
entire Hospital Program is always the sick person, however. Everything 
else is secondary to and must be in the interest of the patient. 

The Bowman Gray School of Medicine of Wake Forest College, is now 
known as one of the best in the country for its research program which has 
been carried on with outstanding results in various fields. The school has 
graduated 492 doctors since it was opened in 1941. 

Graylyn Psychiatric Hospital is owned by the Medical School and is not a 
part of the Baptist Hospital. It operates on a private patient basis and has 
no charity funds. 

Teaching and Healing, two of the principal precepts of Christ's ministry, 
are the main objectives of your Baptist Hospital. The Hospital is the prop- 
erty of North Carolina Baptists, and is the concrete expression of their desire 
to help people find wholeness of life through the healing ministry. In order 
to render a distinctive service as a religious institution, the hospital provides 
a staff of religious workers who are on call twenty-four hours a day. They 
render Pastoral care to patients and their families daily. A religious program 
is provided for nurses and medical students. Sunday School is conducted every 
Sunday morning for children and adult patients. Vesper Services are held two 
nights a week for students, hospital personnel and patients. 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 33 

A Premature Nursery is operated by the Hospital for the care of infants 
weighing less than five pounds when they are born, a large percent of whom 
cannot live without such specialized care. This was one of the first such 
centers opened in North Carolina, and is one of the very few operated in the 
state. Last year we cared for approximately 150 premature babies, an average 
of eleven in the Hospital at all times for an average stay of about six weeks. 
An average of more than 100 babies per month are born at the Hospital with 
a total of 1,448 last year. 

Funds received each year in our Mother's Day Offerings are used exclu- 
sively to help pay hospital expenses of those patients who can pay only a 
part of the hospital cost, and for those who can pay nothing at all. All persons 
are expected to pay such part of the cost as they are able. 

In addition to the Mother's Day Offering, Woman's Missionary Unions, 
through linen showers, provide linens and funds for the purchase of linens, 
to be used in the care of patients. 

The Hospital provided free service in the amount of $527,299.99, in addi- 
tion to free doctors care to needy persons in 1953. Our Hospital provides 
this type of service for persons who cannot pay for it, as well as for those 
who can pay in full. This is where our churches share in this ministry of 
healing. We have no money except what the patients pay and what we give. 
Unless we give generously some will seek in vain for help at our Hospital. 

Mount Zion Association now has 45 Sunday Schools, with a total enrollment 
of 11,927, and all 45 schools reported a Mother's Day Offering this year, with 
a total of $4,434.17. The Offering for this year fell short $1,028.03 of the 
amount given in 1953, and it was the smallest offering we have had since 1950. 

In half a century Medical Science has added 20 years to our life span, and 
we now have 19 million persons in this country past sixty years of age. Many 
of this older group are unemployed and dependent on relatives or the govern- 
ment. An ever increasing number of these old people will be denied needed 
hospital care in our fair state of North Carolina, unless we increase our 
Mother's Day Offerings. Let this not be true because you and I have failed! 

Respectfully submitted, 

Walter M. Williams, 

Hospital Representative. 

REPORT OF THE BAPTIST ORPHANAGE OF N. C. 
TO THE MOUNT ZION BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

It is a privilege and pleasure for me to report to the good people of the 
Mt. Zion Association some of the facts concerning your Orphanage. Through 
the generosity of vou and the other good Baptists of North Carolina, your 
Orphanage was able to care for about 700 children last year. These children 
appreciate your help in providing a home for them. 

At Mills Home in Thomasville, the recreation center and a beautiful new 
church building were completed in 1953, providing adequate facilities for our 
children to play and worship. It would thrill your heart to see the Pastor 
lead your children in worship in this beautiful new Church, by far the most 
beautiful building to grace the campus at Mills Home. A contract is soon 
to be let for a new Church building at Kennedy Home which though not as 
large will be equally as beautiful. With the completion of this Church Building 
the Baptist Orphanage of North Carolina will be able to meet the spiritual 
needs of the children far better than ever before. These facilities were made 
possible through the efforts of Special Friends. Every effort is being made 



34 Eighty-Fifth Annual Session 

to see that our children in the Orphanage are privileged to grow up in a 
spiritual atmosphere. 

The people of the various churches can be best informed about the progress 
of the Baptist Orphanage through its own publication, The Charity and Chil- 
dren. Let me urge every Church in our Association to provide copies for its 
members one way or another. The cost is negligible, the inspiration to be 
found in following the progress being made is priceless. 

Your support in 1953 was good. Through the once-a-month Offering and 
the Thanksgiving Offering the Baptist of North Carolina have continued to 
meet the needs of the homeless children in our midst. God will surely bless 
our people as they provide for those who can't help themselves. Our Savior 
said, "Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name receiveth 
me; and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me.'"' 

The Baptists of North Carolina have done well in the support of the 
Orphanage, but the need continues and our obligation to the less fortunate 
grows with each passing day, so let us make plans to meet the needs of our 
children. It is my hope that each Church in the Mount Zion Association 
will give its members the opportunity to make a generous Thank Offering 
for the support of our Baptist Orphanage. Let me urge each Church not 
only to give her members the opportunity, but inform the members of the 
needs. Each person is urged to give at least one day's pay. Surely, those 
of us who have received so many blessings from our Father in Heaven should 
thank Him and worship Him in a wonderful way. 

Our new plan for Orphanage support begins January 1, 1955. The Bap- 
tist State Convention voted for the Orphanage to come into the Cooperative 
Program on this date. This gives the Church the privilege of sending all 
its funds except the Thanksgiving Offering through the cooperative pro- 
gram, if it so desires. However the General Board and the Executive Secre- 
tary of the Convention make the following recommendations. First that 
churches that now take a once-a-month offering continue this plan. Second, 
that churches which have the Orphanage in the budget for a certain amount 
be encouraged to continue this same method during the period of transition. 

The Thanksgiving Offering will be continued as before, each Church giving 
its people an opportunity to give generously during the Thanksgiving season. 
Let every Church in the Mount Zion Association provide a means of regular 
support for these children who are wholly dependent upon North Carolina 
Baptists for their chance in life. Let every Church in Mount Zion Association 
give their people a chance to make an offering at Thanksgiving which will 
aid in the maintenance and support of these who are dependent on us. We 
must not fail them.

REPORT OF BIBLICAL RECORDER AND OTHER BAPTIST LITERATURE 

Christian literature does not need defending; it needs more distribution 
and wider reading. Never before have Baptists had such opportunities as 
today to magnify and promote the Lord's work through vital Christian litera- 
ture. The printed page is powerful; it's influence is universal. People tend 
to become like things they read and absorb in their minds and hearts. The 
flood of bad literature has spread over our land, with almost every news- 
stand, drug store, bus station, and even grocery stores, selling objectionable 
comic books, bad magazines, lurid books and periodicals that the U. S. Mails 
refuse to carry. This bad literature very often finds its way into Baptist 
homes, and its pages are filled with the seeds of evil. Wider reading of good 
Christian literature would soon destroy the thirst for the bad. Baptists have 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 35 

a great opportunity — to provide the best reading- matter they can get for 
their homes. 

Baptists have compelling reasons for securing and reading Christian litera- 
ture, especially from their own presses. The aim of it all is to promote Bible 
study, to build Christian character, and to inform, enlist, indoctrinate, inspire 
and unify our people in all the great work the Lord has committed to us. 
Dr. M. E. Dodd said: "A non-reading Baptist is a non-informed Baptist. A 
non-informed Baptist is a non-interested Baptist, A non-interested Baptist is 
a non-cooperative Baptist, and a non-cooperative Baptist is not much of a 
Baptist." 

In North Carolina, the Biblical Recorder is the one publication covering 
the entire field of our Baptist work. Without our state Baptist paper, success- 
ful promotion of our Lord's work in all Baptist channels would be almost 
impossible. The Recorder has carried the message of Baptist progress into 
Baptist homes for 121 years. Our Baptist leaders have over the years pro- 
moted its circulation; and they have seen the fruits of much good reading. 
People usually are not interested in, and will not support, that which they 
do not know about. 

The present circulation of the Recorder is approximately 57,000 each week. 
It should go into every Baptist home. We appreciate the support and interest 
of our churches in promotion of the Recorder. 

The Recorder has three subscription plans : Individual subscriptions at 
$2.50 a year; $2.00 a year in clubs, with at least three subscriptions for a 
church with less than 100 members, and five subscriptions for a church with 
more than 100 members; and the Every-Family Plan, at the low rate of $1.50 
a year. About 1,500 churches in North Carolina now either have clubs or 
are in the every family plan. In Mount Zion Association we have 21 churches 
with a Recorder Club and nine churches with the Every-Family plan. 

Let us remember the Recorder and its staff members in prayer as they 
seek to serve us, and as our Biblical Recorder goes into the homes across our 
state let us realize that it exists but for the one purpose of serving our Lord 
who knew the value of spreading knowledge and of spreading His power, when 
he said, "What I tell you . . . proclaim from the housetops." 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. Winfred Overman 

RESOLUTIONS 

We would express our gratitude and love to God for the glory and beauty 
of this day in which we are permitted to conduct the affairs of our Association 
on the first day. We would express our gratitude to Dr. Charles E. Maddry 
and his o;ood people of the First Church, Hillsboro, for their graciousness in 
beautifully caring for our every need, and making such complete arrange- 
ments for our comfort. We would especially thank Brother A. G. White for 
the line spirit and efficient manner in which he has presided over each session. 
We are grateful for the challenge and inspiration given us by each speaker, 
and would thank our own Brother E. C. Chamblee for his stirring message. 
Therefore, be it resolved: 

First, that we express our heart-felt gratitude to God by giving our all 
afresh to Him, and, 

Second, that we dedicate ourselves to following more closely His command 
to "Go into all the world and preach the gospel." 

We would offer our praise to God for His goodness and mercy in bringing 



Eighty-Fifth Annual Session 



us to this, our second day, of our Associational Meeting. For His favors shown 
us, as we expressed in the fine Christian fellowship with one another and with 
God. We would thank Dr. S. T. Habel, Pastor of the Chapel Hill Church, 
and his fine people, for their hospitality shown us today, and we would thank 
God for this great Church and its one hundred years of glorious service. 
Because of these two days of information and inspiration, we would return 
to our churches to be better servants of God. 

Respectfully submitted, 

R. L. Councilman, Chairman, 
Mrs. A. B. Webster, 
Harry Byrd. 

SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

Due to the lack of an Associational organization during this year, not much 
has been done on that level. Through the office of the missionary the churches 
were kept informed of the main features of our Baptist Program, and con- 
stantly challenged to do their best work during this year of "A Million More." 
The 44 Sunday Schools in the Association, on the whole, have done a com- 
mendable job, with a majority of them showing substantial gains in member- 
ship during the year, with a few showing losses. The total net gain in mem- 
bership at year's end stood at 641, giving us an enrollment of 12,737, which 
is the largest in the history of the association. 

Two mass meetings were held during the year — one at Mebane, and the 
other at Swepsonville, both of which were well attended. 

Thirty-four Vacation Bible Schools were held in the Association during 
the summer, representing a gain of three over last year. A helpful Vacation 
Bible School Clinic was held at the Hocutt Memorial Church in April, with 
many of our State leaders on hand. Attendance was good at this clinic. Also, 
in connection with the Vacation Bible School program, we were happy to 
have Miss Shirley Owen among us for six weeks as our Student Worker. She 
conducted the Bible Schools in six of our churches. Let every church, plan for 
a Bible School next year. A total of 2,881 were enrolled in Bible Schools this 
year, which is a gain of 434 over 1953. 

A full Associational organization is in prospect for the coming year, and 
it is the hope that every Sunday School will get in behind it in a cooperative 
manner in order that our work might continue to grow and develop. Past 
achievements are now behind us, and the challenge of the future before us. 
It is great, indeed, for every church and Sunday School. Let us give our best! 

E. C. Wilkie, Missionary. 

TRAINING UNION REPORT— 1954 

The theme of all our studies and activities during this good year of 1954 
has been "Keeping the Faith." Our Lord has honored our efforts with success 
in many ways, in our personal lives, in the life of our churches, and an asso- 
ciation that has been awakened to the blessings that come to all of us by 
mutual cooperation. The purpose of our work has been to strengthen the 
training forces of the local church, by encouraging each Training Union 
to "lengthen its cords and strengthen its stakes," and to lend every encourage- 
ment and help to those churches without a Training Union to organize one 
or more units. 

The objectives set before us at the beginning of the year were as follows: 
30 churches with Training Unions (an increase of 7), total enrollment of 2,500, 
30 churches to hold a training school, 1,000 study course awards, 1,500 "M" 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 37 



Night attendance. Accomplishments: Right here I would like to pay tribute 
to the work of my associates in the Associational organization, to the pastors 
who have willingly given of their time and interest in many ways, to num- 
bers of Training Union members of the churches of our Association who have 
gone out into the churches to help in organizing, teaching study classes, etc. 
Through the efforts of all, the following are some of our accomplishments: 
Seven new churches have organized Training Unions during the year: Bethel, 
Chapel Hill, Edgewood, Glen Raven, West Hill, Oak Grove, Staley Memorial 
and Sidney Avenue (not a member of the Association). I would like to em- 
phasize that Oak Grove organized four units of Training Union and began 
having evening worship services on the same Sunday night. A gain of 381 
has been made in the total enrollments to bring cur total to 2,502. 

There have been at least 27 churches who have held Training Schools dur- 
ing the year requesting 855 study course awards. A simultaneous Training 
Union Revival was held during the week of September 19-26. James Morgan, 
State T. U. Director and other workers from his staff held a two-night clinic 
prior to the week to instruct those who were to teach. There were a total of 
45 classes in 19 churches, with an approximate enrollment of 897. During the 
revival there were 11 new departments and 16 new unions organized, bringing 
the total of new units organized to 44. 

There yet remains a great deal to be accomplished. Fifteen churches do 
not have Training Union, only four churches have a fully graded Training 
Union with units of all departments. The goal for every church should be a 
Training Union enrollment of at least half that of the Sunday School, and 
one unit of Training Union work for every two Sunday School classes. 

Our goals for 1955 are as follows: Eight new churches with Training 
Union, 50 new units or unions, 38 churches having training schools requesting 
1,500 study course awards, enrollment of 3,000, "M" Night attendance of 
2,000, Baptist Youth night attendance of 1,000. 

Your Associational officers have planned and promoted the following meet- 
ings during the year: Four quarterly meetings of the executive committee, 
3 Officers and Leaders Councils, 4 Associational Quarterly Mass Meetings. 
Our Association was represented at the Regional Convention by contestants in 
Junior Memory Work, Intermediate Sword Drill and Young People's Speakers' 
Tournament. 

Our Training Union program for 1955 will be launched during our "M" 
Night meeting of December 6, being held again this year in the Walter Wil- 
liams High School building in Burlington. The theme for our work in 1955 
will be "Be Strong in the Lord." Scripture: "Finally, my brethren, be strong 
in the Lord, and in the power of His might." (Eph. 6:10). Our speaker this 
year will be the Rev. Don Austin, now engaged in full time evangelistic work, 
formerly associated with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. Attend- 
ance goal this year, 1,800 ; last year's attendance, 1,045. 

During the early spring we will promote another Mass Meeting of the 
Association, this being "Baptist Youth Night." This is planned to be a climax 
to Youth Week which all churches are urged to plan and promote. You will 
hear more about this later. 

If your church does not have a Training Union, ponder this question. 
WHY A TRAINING UNION? 

1. We learn to stand on our feet and speak, pray in public, serve on com- 
mittees, and preside. 

2. We receive Bible knowledge, knowledge of Baptist Doctrines, Baptist Mis- 
sionary Activities, and helpful information on social and personal problems 
confronting the Christian in daily life. The programs are up to date, deal- 



38 Eighty-Fifth Annual Session 



ing with vital themes, that prove helpful to the growing Christian. 

3. There is a close, warm, friendly fellowship among those attending the 
unions on Sunday evenings. The monthly social is a part of the T. U. 
program of activities. 

4. The Training Union offers and encourages daily Bible Reading and prayer. 

5. The Training Union is a practical program of soul winning, church attend- 
ance and service. 

WHO SHOULD ATTEND TRAINING UNION? 

1. Every deacon and officer in the church who takes seriously the matter of 
his leadership and influence. 

2. Every Sunday School teacher and officer who desires a more effective 
ministry. 

3. Every W. M. U. member who really believes in the Great Commission. 

4. Every parent who feels the need of help in the big business of Home 
Building. 

5. Every boy and girl who wants to be a well-trained Christian. 

6. Every person who is interested enough in the Kingdom of God to have 
membership in the Church. 

Respectfully submitted, 

C. D. Gattis, Sr., Director. 

WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION REPORT 

In presenting the report of the Mount Zion W. M. U. I would say with 
the Psalmist, "Oh give thanks unto the Lord for He is good." We praise God 
for consecrated leaders and co-workers; for through their efforts and co- 
operation the work of the Association has gone forward. We thank God for 
every service rendered in His name. 

The author Johan Bojar asks, "Have you as yet raised one stepping stone 
upon which other men can climb and say: now we can see farther than 
before?" 

I like to think that the 48 years of the life of Woman's Missionary Union 
in the Mount Zion Association can be viewed as stepping-stones on which our 
members climb from year after year. From successively higher vantage points 
we see more clearly the needs of unsaved people and our opportunities to help 
meet them through missionary education and the support of the work of our 
mission boards. 

Woman's Missionary Union purpose is to enlist more women and young 
people in missionary activity by extending its organizations into churches 
where there are none. We are happy to report that we have 40 Woman's 
Missionary Societies and 121 Young People's organizations with a membership 
of 2,431. 

The report of our departments of Community Mission, Mission Study and 
Stewardship are most heartening. 

Ralph Waldo Emerson once wrote, "Rings and Jewels are not gifts, but 
apologies for gifts. The only gift is a portion of thyself." The Community 
Mission program of Woman's Missionary Union provides an avenue through 
which women and young people can give themselves in service that makes 
real to those around them the message of Christ. 

During the year we had 45 organizations engaged monthly in directed 
Community Missions work. 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 39 

Would you like to fly from New York to Paris in less than an hour or 
from Boston to San Francisco in 45 minutes. Believe it or not but 1807 women 
and young people traversed the world and lingered in many cities and coun- 
tries in scarcely more than twice this length of time. They did not fly in 
jet planes but safely at home by the magic of print they poked into out of the 
way places in the world, thrilled at the beauty of our own land, rejoiced over 
gospel trophies, felt the tug at their hearts of the hungry restless millions 
throughout the world. These were the women and young people enrolled in 
the 135 Mission Study classes during the year. The missionary background 
of our members were enriched by 1,156 members reading missionary books 
during the year. 

Stewardship is one of the fundamental teachings of the Bible, it is a vital 
part of Christian living. Stewardship is one of the great objectives of Southern 
Baptist. Stewardship of tithes and offerings is one of the Chief Aims of 
Woman's Missionary Union. Stewardship and offerings provide the financial 
support of all missionary work. Realizing this we have stressed Stewardship 
through special programs and study and are happy to report 1,197 of our 
members tithing this year, with $10,856.27 given to the four special offerings 
of Woman's Missionary Union this year. 

Woman's Missionary Union is a church organization, as such everything 
which effects the life of the church is vital to her. Therefore, Woman's Mis- 
sionary Union includes in its plan of work an emphasis upon the Cooperative 
Program. We rejoice that 1,778 of our members give through the Cooperative 
Program. 

The emphasis of Woman's Missionary Union this year is on Evangelism. 
Our watchword for this year is most timely and significant. It points to per- 
sonal evangelism and world redemption, "And as Moses lifted up the serpent 
in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up." Our women 
accept our responsibility in the great simultaneous crusade of evangelism that 
our denomination is launching this year. 

As the words of our risen Lord, "Go tell," echo still in our hearts today, 
may we be faithful to tell the gospel story in our homes, our communities 
and to the uttermost parts of the earth through our prayers and tithes and 
offerings. As we sing our new hymn, When I Survey the Wondrous Cross, 
this year, may every word of its message constrain each one to remember that, 
that sacrificial "Love so amazing, so divine, demands my soul, my life, my all." 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. John R. Poindexter.

Historical Sketches of Mt. Zion Churches 



Brief histories of Mt. Zion churches are recorded in the Minutes of the 
years as herewith listed. The Association Historian suggests that every church 
in the Association have copies of the A ssociational Minutes bound every ten 
years and keep them in the local church libraries. This will make the minutes 
of the years available to all the churches, and these bound volumes will grow 
more valuable with each passing year. 

Although our Association has had Historians almost from the date of its 
organization still the Clerk was not able to find the history of any church 
recorded in the Minutes until 1921. Just why the sketches of other years were 
not recorded in the Minutes is inexplicable. 

At the 1874 sessicn of the Association it was decided to elect a Historian 
annually. The Minutes of 1875 record that "The report of the historian was 
adopted and ordered to be recorded in the 'Book of Records of the Associa- 
tion.' " No trace of this book exists. The historical sketches from 1921 ar3 
shown in Minutes as follows: 

1921 Sketch of the Association

These Minutes are dedicated to the memory of three Pastors who have 
passed on to be with the Lord since our last annual meeting. 



Rev. Ralph A. Wilson (top left) 
was called into the ministry by the 
Glencoe Baptist Church in September, 
1933, while he was still a layman, and 
he served as pastor of that Church 
until his death in April, 1955. 

Rev. Carl H. Henderson (top 
right) served 31 years as a Baptist 
Pastor, having served Moore's Chapel 
Baptist Church just before going to 
the pastorate of the Riverside Baptist 
Church, Asheville, where he was serv- 
ing at the time of his death in May, 
1955 



Rev. Ross E. Heath (above) served the Oak Grove Baptist Church 
during the closing years of his ministry, and after his retirement he 
preached in many of the churches of this Association, endearing himself 
to a great host of friends. We are grateful to the Lord for the ministry 
of these men of God. 




"Well done, thou good and faithful servant."

ASSOCIATIONAL MISSIONS REPORT 

It has been the purpose of your Associational Missions Committee during the past 
year to "strengthen the stakes" of our Missions Program in all of our churches. Al- 
though it has not been a year in which any new missions have been started, we are 
happy to report that there are more churches in our Association cooperating in and 
supporting the program of Associational Missions than ever before. For this fact we 
are profoundly grateful to God. Your committee is grateful for any part that it might 
have had in bringing about greater participation on the part of the churches. We 
would commend every church for the role that it has played in the success of the 
work, and would urge continued participation not only in the cause of Christian 
Missions in our Association, but around the world. Our desire, and our goal, is to 
see every church in the Association dedicated to the cause of world missions and 
supporting the program both spiritually and materially. 

Your Missions Committee has lead in the discussions pertaining to enlarging our 
Executive Committee to include the pastor and a representative from each church in 
the Association, and looks with favor upon this suggestion. 

One of the accomplishments in which your committee rejoices with you and has 
had a part in bringing to fruition, along with your Executive Committee, is the con- 
struction of a new house for our Associational Missionary and his family. We would 
express our thanksgiving to God for this achievement and for the part that each 
church has had in making this dream come true. We would urge the continued 
support of every church until the indebtedness on the house shall have been liquidated. 

Your Missions Committee and your Associational Missionary stand ready to serve 
you and the interests of the Kingdom of God at all times and pledge their wholehearted 
support in starting any new work in which the Lord leads, and in strengthening the 
work of every church.

BAPTIST BROTHERHOOD REPORT 

We have 15 active Brotherhoods with 497 men enrolled, and to this number have 
been added the Royal Ambassadors, with 233 boys enrolled. The Brotherhood is 
gradually assuming the responsibility of the work with the boys, and a resolution to 
this effect is being presented to the Association this year (see paragraph 49 in proceed- 
ings). We have had successful mass meetings for men during the year at Hillsboro 
First Church and Swepsonville Church, and the work of the Baptist Brotherhood is 
looking up. 

James L. Maness, President. 

BAPTIST HOMES FOR THE AGING REPORT 

The North Carolina Baptist Homes for the Aging began their fifth year of opera- 
tion March 16, 1955. This has been a year of encouraging progress. Both Homes— 
Resthaven and Albemarle— have had a continuing waiting list of applicants. As soon 
as a vacancy occurs there are far more applicants for admission than can be accepted. 

This year will be remembered as one of notable enlargement of facilities. Construc- 
tion of the Administration and Residential Building, costing $300,000, will get under 
way, and it should be completed by this time next year. The new building will pro- 
vide office facilities, dining room, kitchen, chapel, infirmary, recreational and handicraft 
space, and rooms for forty additional residents, thus raising the total capacity of the 
Homes to 95 residents. 

Two-thirds of the cost of the new building is now in hand, counting the value of 
real estate turned over to the Homes. Personal and corporation gifts are being re- 
ceived which will further add to the amount on hand. 

Memorial gifts may be made in the following way: A gift of $300.00 will furnish a 
room; $1,000.00 will endow— furnish and maintain— a room; $3,000.00 will pay cost of 
building a room. In either case, a memorial plaque— bearing the name of donor and 
the name of the person memorialized, or honored— will be placed on the door of a 
room. 

Miss Nettie Pearl Willis gave her homeplace at Vale, N. C, as a memorial to her 
mother, Mrs. Laura Elliott Goode Willis. The property will be sold and proceeds be 
used to erect a cottage on the permanent site of our Homes. In addition, Miss Willis 
made her will in favor of the Homes. 

Increasing support on the part of our churches and denominational program gives 
great encouragement. So far this year, our Special Day Offering has reached almost 
$70,000.00 

Since many of the churches put the Homes in the budget instead of taking a 
special offering, and some of the churches wait until the end of the calendar year to 
send their gifts, a complete report for the year cannot be made at this time. But it is 
likely that our goal of $100,000.00 for the special offering will be nearly reached. 
In addition, the Homes will receive $39,850.00 as their share of the Nine Year Pro- 
gram, according to the estimated budget. 

With increasing aid from denominational sources, the Homes are helping a larger 
number who do not have the sufficient funds with which to pay the cost of keep as 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 25 

residents. In fact, about ninety per cent of all the residents are being helped by 
the Homes— some with about two-thirds of the cost of keep, and others with about 
one-third. Less than ten per cent of the residents in the Homes have turned over 
enough assets to pay their cost of keep on the life plan. Regardless of financial condi- 
tion, an applicant is received into the Homes on the basis of need and room available. 

All connected with the Homes— staff and residents— are most grateful for the 
prayers and support of our friends. "Hitherto hath the Lord helped." Surely all 
North Carolina Baptists should be grateful for the progress made thus far. Let us all 
rally to the challenge to render a greater ministry to the increasing number of aging 
friends who need the services of our Homes. 

The total gifts in the "special offering" from Mount Zion Association last February 
was $2,146.36.

BAPTIST HOSPITAL REPORT 

Our Baptist Hospital fills an important place in the life and work of North 
Carolina Baptists. It will probably serve 50,000 patients this year, touching every area 
of our State. The capacity of our Hospital has been increased to 450 beds, including 
bassinets, and a great many new and enlarged facilities have been added to render 
service to our people. 

In addition to the great host of sick people who receive medical attention and care, 
our Hospital provides an educational program for more than 450 young people who are 
in training to become nurses, doctors, technicians, pastors and other Christian workers. 
The Nursing School has graduated 653 nurses since it was opened in 1923, and the 
Medical School has graduated 540 doctors since it was opened in 1941. A number of 
nursing students and medical students are now in training for foreign mission service. 
Dr. and Mrs. J. P. Satterwhite and Dr. and Mrs. C. F. Clark, all from the nursing 
school and medical school in Winston-Salem, are in Japan with our new Baptist 
hospital which has just been opened. Dr. Satterwhite has been in charge of the 
preparation of the hospital and will be in charge of its operations. Dr. Luke Kitahata, 
a brilliant young Christian who was led to Christ by Edwin Dozier while he was in 
medical school at the Imperial University of Tokyo, is this month completing six years 
of special training at our Baptist Hospital and will go back to Japan in November to 
work in our new Baptist Hospital as a neuro-surgeon (nerve and brain surgery). Dr. 
and Mrs. J. T. McRae have just recently returned from their first term of medical 
service in the Near East, where he has been working at the hospital in the Inter- 
national Gaza Strip where there are thousands of refugees to be cared for. Dr. McRae is 
a graduate of the medical school in Winston-Salem and is taking advanced work in 
surgery during his furlough. 

The Department of Pastoral Care of our Baptist Hospital interviews the prospec- 
tive mission appointees, along with the medical examinations, in helping to determine 
the prospects' qualifications for mission service. This department works in close co- 
operation with the Foreign Mission Board in this respect and also in counseling with 
our missionaries on furlough and prospective missionaries who have special problems 
or need special guidance in this field. A great many of our missionaries go to our 
Baptist Hospital for their physical examinations and for treatment, if treatment is 
needed, while they are on furlough. Our Hospital is tied in very closely with the work 
of our Foreign Mission Board. The Department of Pastoral Care provides Christian 
counseling and guidance for the patients, students, hospital staff and personnel, as 
well as hundreds of others who come to the hospital from over the State for this 
purpose alone. 

It is not easy to estimate the value of these and other services rendered by our 



26 Eighty-sixth Annual Session 

hospital to multiplied thousands of people of all ages in the fields of health, educa- 
tion, and spiritual guidance. 

The cost of carrying on this program for such a multitude of people is tre- 
mendous—more than two million dollars a year. One-half million dollars of this is 
spent in helping to care for sick people who are not able to pay for the service they 
need. This amount is in addition to the free service rendered by the doctors. Here 
the Churches of our Association have the opportunity and privilege of sharing in the 
work carried on by our Baptist Hospital. Through the Mother's Day Offering taken 
in our Churches, we can all have a part in helping to pay the hospital expense of 
many patients in need of financial assistance. Mount Zion Association Churches gave 
the largest Mother's Day Offering this year that we have ever given. Forty-three of 
the Churches reported a Mother's Day Offering, and of these 43 Churches, 29 showed 
an improvement over the Mother's Day Offering made in 1954. The 1955 Offering 
amounted to $6,088.04, a gain of at least $1,653.87. This year many of our Churches 
appointed a special Hospital representative who helped the pastor and Sunday School 
superintendent promote the Mother's Day Offering. These special representatives 
served well in presenting the needs of our Baptist Hospital and challenging the people 
to make a worthy Mother's Day Offering. 

Although the 1955 Mother's Day Offering in our Association was an outstanding one, 
we must strive to encourage every member of our Churches to contribute just as much 
as possible to this worthy cause. My life-long appeal to the Churches has been to 
give every one an opportunity to have a part in carrying on the Master's work; and, 
surely, if each person in each Church is inspired to do his part, we can anticipate a 
greater Mother's Day Offering than ever before. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Walter M. Williams. 

BAPTIST ORPHANAGE REPORT 

During the past year, your program of child care in North Carolina moved steadily 
forward as a total of 713 children were cared for at the Baptist Orphanages. At the 
same time, services were given to 600 other children as the staff helped in the place- 
ment of these in homes throughout the state. 

A fine building program was continued both at Kennedy Home and Mills Home. 
The church building at Kennedy Home is almost completed and is considered one of 
the most beautiful in the state. This has been considered one of the greatest needs 
for the 160 children at Kennedy Home. 

During this year, Broy Hill Swimming Pool was constructed at Mills Home. This 
construction was made possible by the gift from the Broy Hills of Lenoir, North 
Carolina. 

In 1954, the orphanage income from the churches was at an all-time high. The 
Baptist Churches of North Carolina continue to send the orphanage support through 
the once-a-month offering as well as through the cooperative program. 

Under the new plan of support by the Baptist State Convention, the Thanksgiving 
Offering becomes more important than ever before. Future expansion in our child 
care program will depend largely upon the Thanksgiving Offering. Therefore, we urge 
you to promote a worthy Thank Offering in your church this year with a goal for 
each person in the church to give at least "one day's pay" to help the homeless 
children who cannot possibly help themselves. 

Mount Zion Baptists have always supported the Baptist Orphanages of North 
Carolina. Let us continue our support of this worthy program. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Jack M. Euliss.

BAPTIST PUBLICATIONS REPORT 
The printed page has great power; its message can go to many places where the 
spoken word and a sermon cannot be heard. Christian literature is a mighty force 
for good in promoting the work of the Kingdom and in sowing the seeds of righteous- 
ness in the minds of people today. There is a vast flood of bad literature that 
promotes paganism, worldliness, and downright evil thoughts and deeds. Some of this 
unwholesome literature naturally finds its way into the homes of Baptist people. 
Baptists have compelling reasons to seek out and use the fine Christian literature that 
is available today, and surely they ought to read the excellent variety that comes 
from Baptist presses. 

Perhaps no body of people in the world has a finer array of wholesome, inspiring 
literature for all ages than Baptists. The aim of it all is to inform the people, to 
unify and enlist them in the Lord's work, to indoctrinate them in Baptist truths, to 
uphold the Bible and its teachings, and to point out the great sweep of Baptist work 
that claims the best efforts of all who serve God in these days. Christian literature 
must be promoted, read and used by our people in our homes and in our churches, 
if the whole program is to be carried out by Baptists working together. 

When the North Carolina Baptist Convention was organized in 1830, its main 
purpose, as stated in the constitution, was "the promotion of missions, education, social 
service, and the distribution of sound religious literature." Shortly afterward, in 
1833, the BIBLICAL RECORDER was founded, and for 122 years it has borne the 
true message of Baptist life, growth and thought in North Carolina. 

Our Orphanage paper, CHARITY AND CHILDREN, was begun in 1887 and now 
has a circulation of 48,000 and comes to us for the same price as it began. The 
BIBLICAL RECORDER has a circulation of 61,000 and can be secured for $2.50 for 
individual subscriptions, $2-00 for members in the Club Plan and for $1.50 in the 
Every-Family Plan. 

Let us remember in prayer those who edit these publications that theirs shall be 
a faithful witness in the churches and homes of our state. May we realize the op- 
portunity for information and inspiration in these publications and become informed 
Baptists. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Lillian Humphrey. 

HISTORIAN'S REPORT 
HISTORY OF THE MOORE'S CHAPEL BAPTIST CHURCH 

J. H. Vernon, Missionary of the Mount Zion Baptist Association, on Tuesday 
night after the first Sunday in September, 1873, held the first recorded meeting at 
Moore's School Llouse near Saxapahaw. He preached at night and even if it was 
fodder pulling time he reported good congregations. There were several Baptists in 
the community belonging to four Baptist churches eight to twelve miles away. Some 
of them wanted to organize, but others thought it would weaken the home churches. 
Men had wives of other denominations or wives had husbands of other denominations. 
The Missionary thought the time was ripe to organize. 

In April, 1874, Cane Creek Baptist Church authorized Chesley Moore and E. F. 
Freeman to sit with our Missionary and brethren Green Moore, Jesse Winningham, W. 
C. Moore and G. C. Guthrie at Moore's School House in Church Conference to 
receive and baptize members into the fellowship of this church. On April 7, 1878 
Moore's Chapel Baptist Church was constituted at Moore's School House by Elder 
R. A. Patterson and Samuel Baldwin, consisting of 33 members from Cane Creek, 
Mount Olive, Antioch and Mount Gilead Baptist Churches, with Chesley Moore, 
Green Moore and G. C. Guthrie deacons, and J. H. Winningham church clerk. R. A. 



28 Eighty-sixth Annual Session 

Patterson was called as pastor. The Church adopted a church covenant and joined 
the Mount Zion Baptist Association. 

With Chesley and Green Moore donating the land, a church house was completed 
in 1880 at a cost of $767.52. The pastor contributed his year's salary, $25.00, to the 
building fund. Columbus Durham, of the First Baptist Church, Durham, preached 
the dedication sermon on the text, "I must be about my Father's business." 

Just before the Mount Zion Association was held at Moore's Chapel in 1882, a white 
washed paling fence was erected around the church and graveyard at a cost of 
$45.00. Later when the Fence Law was repealed the fence was sold and the money 
received put on the Pastor's Salary. For the first ten years under the pastorate of R. A. 
Patterson and R. A. Moore, the church almost tripled in membership. However a few 
members had been excluded for joining the Freewill Baptists, and two large families left 
the church and joined the M. P.'s. 

In the period from 1888 to 1921 Elders O. T. Edwards, J. L. Smith, J. W. Watson, 
J. F. McDuffie, A. C. Hamby, N. H. Shepherd, R. B. Lineberry, W. T. Hurst, R. P. 
Ellington, L. R. Dixon, and Spurgeon Glosson served as pastors. Most of them 
lived a day's travel from the church and often preached only one Sunday afternoon 
a month. During this time the membership declined almost to the number when 
organized. Many things caused this decline. The pastors were good men but were 
absentees. 

The families of leading members were large, but their children moved away or 
married into families of other denominations and ceased to be Baptists. Wages were 
low in the mill and mill workers often moved. During this time Sunday School was 
conducted only during warm weather on Sunday afternoons, when members from 
other denominations could serve as officers and teachers. This unionism continued 
until recent years. 

Association and union meetings were well represented from this church and con- 
tributions were made to foreign and associational missions and the orphanage. 
Moore's Chapel was never a mission church. In 1899 the church paid the expenses 
($3.50) of the pastor to the State Convention in Asheville. 

In 1913 a discussion of moving the church to the village of Saxapahaw was begun. 
Finally in 1921 a deed for a lot was secured and about 1924 during the pastorate of 
C. E. Byrd, the present church house was built. 

During the pastorate of B. F. DeLoach, in 1925, 33 were baptized at one time. The 
membership then reached 95 and the church took on new life. An evergreen Sunday 
School was organized. J. M. Cheek, R. F. Moore, T. A. Jones and Ed J. Loy were 
ordained as deacons. Miss Pauline Roberson conducted the first Vacation Bible School 
and took such an active part in the church work that she was sent as the first woman 
messenger to the Association. The later pastors have been B. L. Gupton, Bryant Carr, 
W. L. Lynch, G. G. Grubb, Isaac Terrell, H. S. Branch, C. H. Henderson and J. O. 
Jeffcoat.

RESOLUTIONS 

We would express our love and gratitude to God for the blessings and love He 
has bestowed upon us in giving us two wonderful fall days for our associational 
meeting. We would thank Dr. C. S. Prickett, our host pastor, and his good people of 
the First Baptist Church, Burlington, N. C, for the bountiful way they have pre- 
pared for our comfort and happiness, as we have sought to transact all business. 
Brother A. G. White, our efficient moderator, has kept our meeting on a very high 
plane, carrying out the wishes of the delegates, for which we would express our deep 
gratitude. We are resolved to be more missionary minded after hearing the inspiring 
and challenging message delivered by Brother Warren E. Kerr. We would express our 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 29 

gratitude to God for our energetic and devoted Associational Missionary, Brother E. C. 
Wilkie and pledge to him our continued prayers and support as he leads us in our 
great Missionary Program. 

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED: 

1. That we express our gratitude to God by being better Servants of His. 

2. That we strive to carry out His command more nearly by dedicating ourselves 
anew to preaching His Gospel to all men. 

3. We are grateful for each speaker who has brought us information and inspira- 
tion from the institutions and causes which they represented. 

We are indebted to the good people of Moore's Chapel for their gracious reception 
of all messengers and visitors on this, the second day of our Associational Meeting, 
and we would express our gratitude to them. It has been an inspiring meeting and 
we would return to our churches to be "Doers of the Word and not hearers only."

SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

The Bible teaches, "The entrance of thy word giveth light," and that "The word 
maketh people wise unto salvation," and therefore we realize the importance of the 
Bible teaching ministry of the Sunday School. Our work, given by Christ, was not only 
to evangelize, but to teach them to observe the things He commanded. This year we 
feel that progress has been made along this line in our Association. We have in- 
creased in number and Spirit. There has been an increase in enrollment of about 
1,000, and one Sunday School has been added to our number. All the meetings on 
our Associational level have been held, for the first time in several years. The Vaca- 
tion Bible School reports have been encouraging, with an increase in number. There 
has been a clinic for teachers that proved very successful. 

Over our entire state strides have been made in Sunday School work. North 
Carolina now leads the S. B. C. in percentage of membership enrolled in Sunday 
School. 

The Apostle Paul would instruct us now to look forward, to have a vision for the 
coming year, to press toward the Mark set by our Lord and Savior, and to ever increase 
in Spirit and strength. May we in the Mt. Zion Association set our goals high for the 
coming year; we can reach them if we try. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Thomas C. Williams. 

TRAINING UNION REPORT 

The statistical tables will not indicate we have realized any of our goals set forth 
in my last year's report. In fact I am inclined to feel we have slipped backward 
slightly in total enrollment and the number of churches who have one or more train- 
ing unions. The program of training union work is more challenging and helpful both 
to the individual Christian and the church, than ever before, and the churches who 
have no training program, or those who are working only half heartedly at the job, 
are the greatest losers. 

Your associational officers have planned and promoted the following meetings 
during the year; 4 quarterly meetings of the executive committee, 4 officers and leaders 
council meetings, 3 associational mass meetings, 6 quarterly mass meetings by groups, 
1 associational Baptist Youth night mass meeting. Our first Youth Night meeting was 
a distinct success, not only in attendance, but the program was superbly planned by 
the Intermediate and Young Peoples Leaders. The spiritual tone of the meeting was 



30 Eighty-sixth Annual Session 

heart warming and uplifting. Again in 1956 a Youth Night Mass meeting will be 
planned. One of our churches, the First Baptist Church of Burlington was host to 
the Regional Convention of group four, which broke all previous records for enroll- 
ment. Your association had contestants in each of the tournaments, Junior Memory 
Work, Intermediate Sword Drill, Young Peoples Speakers, Adult Scripture Reading 
and two choirs in the Hymn Festival. 

This next year we are sponsoring two M Night meetings, one in the Burlington- 
Graham area, and another in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro area. In doing this we are 
following the lead of other progressive associations. It has been proven more churches 
and people can be reached in two meetings on separate nights, than in one central 
meeting. These M Night meetings will be held on Monday and Tuesday nights De- 
cember 5th. and 6th. At these meetings the Training Union Program for 1956 will 
be launched. The theme for our work in 1956 is "PREPARED UNTO EVERY 
GOOD WORK." Scripture: "If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall 
be a vessel unto honor, sanctified and meet for the masters use, and prepared unto 
every good work" (2 Timothy 2:21). Our aim is "TO HELP US TO PREPARE FOR 
MORE EFFECTIVE CHRISTIAN SERVICE." In keeping with this aim, we have 
planned to bring our meetings closer to the individual Christian and churches of our 
association, and to use a larger number of individuals in the programs of these 
meetings, thereby training our people for a more effective Christian service. 

In our Southern Baptist Convention it took 53 years from 1895 to 1948 to reach the 
first million enrolled in Training Union. During the next six years from 1948 to 
1954 we reached the second million. We are now challenged by our leaders to reach 
the third million during the next three years. We can do it, How? By increasing the 
enrollment of our Training Unions by 15% each year for the next 3 years. The work 
for the year ahead is a great challenge to the officers and churches of our association. 
We are hoping and praying for a larger success than during the past year. We stand 
ready to serve all the churches, but before we can be of any service to your church, we 
must first be invited. 

Respectfully submitted, 

C. D. Gattis, Sr. 

WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION REPORT 

Each time I bring a report of the development and activities of the W. M. U. in 
our Association, I am ever mindful that behind each accomplishment are the lives 
of many individuals who have invested time, energy, means and personality to the end 
that Christ might be shared with others. It is a privilege to give an account of our 
work the past year, and every woman who has participated in a Missionary Society 
has had a vital part in it. We sincerely appreciate the leadership of every local 
W. M. U. officer, for God has worked through them, and to Him we owe the greatest 
debt of gratitude. 

Considerable growth has been shown the past year, yet we still have 5 churches 
without a W. M. S. and 3 that never make a report. Too few are graded. We need 
more enlistment, which would result in more A-l Societies. We have gained 13 new 
young people's organizations, and yet there are 8 Societies without any young 
people's organization. Everywhere we are confronted with the problem of leaders 
for our young people. We believe that the missionary organizations are vital 
in keeping our churches missionary. We cannot afford to neglect teaching tomorrow's 
leaders the things upon which our denomination is founded. 

Under the leadership of Miss Rebecca Crawford the young people's work is moving 
forward in a great way. At her suggestion a leader was appointed for each organiza- 
tion, and these leaders have done much. Four outstanding meetings were held during 
the year. In November the Rev. E. C. Wilkie promoted a Royal Ambassador conclave 
at Chapel Hill with around 300 attending. An Associational Y. W. A. Tea was held 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 31 

in February at Hocutt Memorial Church, and well attended. A G. A. Coronation 
Service was held at Hocutt Memorial Church also. 

Over 300 Sunbeams and leaders gathered at the Mebane First Church in August 
for the Sunbeam Rally, the first meeting of this kind to be held here. Mrs. A. C. 
Bridgers is Sunbeam leader for the Association. 

An informed people is an alert people. The Mission Study Institutes held under 
the supervision of Mrs. John O. Jeffcoat, Mission Study Chairman, resulted in the 
increase in mission study classes and the larger number enrolled. It is with deep regret 
that we bid good-bye to Mrs. Jeffcoat, as she and her husband go to Alaska as Home 
Missionaries. Mrs. I. G. Greer takes up the work of mission study. We shall re- 
member the Jeffcoats as they go to tell the Gospel to those under the North Star. 

More societies observed the seasons of prayer the past year, and the results were 
increased gifts to the special offerings— $7,356.69 to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, 
$2,529.20 to Annie Armstrong Home Missions Offering, $771.54 to the Heck-Jones 
Memorial offering, and $1,584.58 to the State Mission Offering, a total of $12,242.01 to 
these offerings, 3rd in gifts in the Raleigh Division. 

We praise God for the consecrated leadership in Community Missions. Mrs. Roger 
Morris is Associational Chairman. "Stewardship concretes Consecration." A concrete 
evidence of advance in stewardship is seen in the increase in tithers and in the number 
given through the Co-operative Program and spcial offerings. Our Stewardship 
Chairman, Mrs. Daphne Hayes, is leading in a wonderful way. 

The annual meeting of our Association was held at Hillsboro First Church last 
April with the theme, "Go Quickly and Tell." The meeting was well attended and 
very inspiring. We were pleased to have several pastors present. It means a great deal 
to the women when the pastors show an interest in our work. The Woman's Missionary 
Union has always been an auxiliary, and we ask not for the first places of leadership, 
but to help those who are first in leadership. 

I cannot close this report without a word of praise for the work of Mrs. E. C. 
Wilkie, the wife of our Associational Missionary. She has been a great blessing with 
her teaching and leading in such a charming, talented manner. The Mount Zion 
Association is indeed fortunate to have two consecrated missionaries for the price of one. 

Next year will mark the 50th year of our Woman's Missionary Union work. It is 
fitting that we observe this golden jubilee anniversary and review the achievements 
of half a century, while paying homage to those who laid the foundations of the work 
on which we are building, and give thanks to God who has led us and blessed us. As 
we look forward to increased goals in our Jubilee year, I am reminded of what Miss 
Annie W. Armstrong once said, "I have always found that if one will go forward in 
faith she will find the stone rolled away." 

There is much to be done. We are looking forward to greater things for Christ. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. John R. Poindexter, Superintendent.

Historical Sketches of Mt. Zion Churches 



Brief histories of Mt. Zion churches are recorded in the Minutes of the years as 
herewith listed. The Association Historian suggests that every church in the As- 
sociation have copies of the Associational Minutes bound every ten years and keep 
them in the local church libraries. This will make the minutes of the years available 
to all the churches, and these bound volumes will grow more valuable with each 
passing year. 

Although our Association has had Historians almost from the date of its organiza- 
tion still the Clerk was not able to find the history of any church recorded in the 
Minutes until 1921. Just why the sketches of other years were not recorded in the 
Minutes is inexplicable. 

At the 1874 session of the Association it was decided to elect a Historian annually. 
The Minutes of 1875 record that "The report of the historian was adopted and ordered 
to be recorded in the 'Book of Records of the Association.' " No trace of this book 
exists. The historical sketches from 1921 are shown in Minutes as follows:
